What a crazy weekend! I was so excited to see the Currently for the month, but didn't have a spare moment to post. So here I am on the 4th joining in:) Head on over to Farley's Oh' Boy 4th Grade to link up. I totally didn't know her name was Meghan. Am I alone there?
OK- if you have been around my blog for a while, you know I LOVE General Hospital:) Enough said there!
I bought myself a Nook the day after Thanksgiving for $50.00 from Target. I didn't upgrade because I didn't think I would like it and I didn't want to waste my money. But boy was I WRONG! I love my Nook. The only thing that bothers me is that all books are not lendable. I do not miss actually holding a book like I thought I would.
My 2nd formal observation is Thursday and I am dragging my feet. I need to plan a reading lesson and write it up. I am such a procrastinator!!
13 school days left until Spring Break. Thirteen is also my favorite number in case you were wondering. Heehee!
Our team created a rubric last year integrating Common Core Writing and Grammar Standards. At first we though it may have been a bit much, but it seems to be right on when grading a piece of writing. Our literacy coach is fabulous and put all four quarters together on one sheet. I can't seem to upload the rubric from Microsoft Word as a jpeg so if you would like a copy, please leave a message with your email and I would be happy to send it to you!
Finally, I like anything Mexican, but tacos are a sure go-to:) I am obsessed with Panera Bread's Green Tea and am in BIG trouble because there is a drive through Panera across the street from our new development.
Thinking I might need a Large Ice Green Tea soon:)
