I know I have also blogged about Smart Exchange before but it has been forever ago. They have several SmartBoard resources that go along with time. They are interactive and fun to do as a class while teaching the concepts! Sign up on their website then just search time. You won't regret it--they have Smart Notebook activities for most math concepts.
Last Thursday we set personal and school goals with out students for 2013 and talked about how to earn your goals. I'm so proud of my students' AR goals. I have one student who wanted to make hers 70 but we settled for 65. Last quarter her goal was 60 and she ended with 63! She is such a bookworm. I set goals along with my students. My main goal of the school year was to teach one of my students who didn't qualify for special services to read. She has already been held back and still struggles. She usually reads at a kindergarten level. My goal is to sit down with her individually every day (even though she is pulled with title) to practice sounding out words. She knows the letter sounds and blends but she has trouble pulling them all together. I hope I can continue to work with her. She is my biggest challenge but such a hard worker. I hope I can continue to teach her strategies and she will use them...and that they work!!!
On another note my boyfriend left for Texas until March! I miss him already but I'm super excited to go to Texas twice in the next month to visit! I'm taking a couple days off in January to fly down and then again in February over Valentine's Day. I love Dallas and can't wait to enjoy their
Have a great week!
