Sorry I've been MIA lately. We are getting ready to have Parent Teacher Conferences soon and I've had meeting after meeting the past few weeks! I wanted to share with you a few things from my classroom last week.
I've started implementing Diane from Fifth in the Middle's NOISE letters in my classroom. Whenever my students are loud and off-task, I take a letter away. When we get to "NO," they do not earn their class puzzle piece towards their class reward. If we lose an "O" the entire class has to stay an extra minute after the bell.
My math unit right now is fractions, and I've been doing a lot of small group instruction. It has been WONDERFUL! I would love suggestions from intermediate elementary teachers who implement centers/stations and small group instruction for math!
Did I mention I moved my desk again? I think I've finally found the classroom arrangement I want! New pictures soon!
