Does anyone else feel like they are just surviving?! I really hope to get on a consistent blogging schedule since school is back in session. School is good, but I am still feeling like I am just surviving! :)
I wanted to share a few of our notebooking entries. We are using interactive notebooking in all subject areas.
Our first page in our Math notebook was "How I Feel About Math". I thought this entry was so honest and sweet at the same time. It really helped me understand my students as mathematicians.
We've used foldables to help us make our notebooks interactive. Here's an example of one:
We've started our study of Reconstruction, which I think is so interesting. I LOVE 5th grade Social Studies standards in our state, which is Reconstruction to present day. We used construction paper to make these foldables for the 13th, 14th, and 15th amendments.
We've also used foldables in our Reading notebooks to keep track of our vocabulary!
By Friday, my desk area was a mess and I had to straighten things up before I left! It makes me feel better to leave with things organized and straightened! This was about halfway finished.
Now, off of teaching for a minute...
I am SO ready for Fall! I love, love, love Fall! I am so thankful to have tomorrow off and can't wait to spend time at my town's Labor Day Festival. Some of my favorite fall activities include Tennessee VOLS football (Go Big Orange!), visiting pumpkin patches, fall scenery, and county fairs! I am LOVING fall! I put up all of my fall decorations last night and am loving it!
I'll be back tomorrow to show you a peek at my upcoming week!
