A Ramble and Common Core Chat


OK, I am exhausted!  My alarm was set for 6:15 and I hit snooze too many times to mention!
 My firsties were so sweet and so excited to see me...it made my lack of sleep worth it:)

Reading went smoother than I could imagine.  I will post more about this later, but let's just say I started true Daily 5 centers today with the 5 mini-lessons in between and it went SMOOTHLY!

But, you can't ask for everything because math was suppose to be a review and addition and subtraction were jumbled up in their little brains over break.  "Oh, my!" is all I have to say about that.

So, tomorrow is another day and I have backed up my math instruction to reteach tomorrow...again!

Switching gears!

Do you want (or need) to dive deeply into the Common Core?  Well, sit back and check out the preview of the Common Core Chat over at Tamara's blog, Mrs. Russell's Room. 


If you head over there now, Tamara has a description of what she is planning tomorrow night as well as for the next several weeks.  I love how Tamara delves into content in all her posts.  I am sure tomorrow night will be amazing. An FYI- She will be focusing on K-1 so if that is you, I hope to see you there:)

  1. Hi Tammy,

    I'm looking forward to your posts on the Daily 5. I'm only fitting in Daily 3, so I'd love to hear how you get it all in. I'm off to read about Tamara's Common Core chat. Thanks for the information.
