MAP Testing Parent Letters & $1,200 Classroom Spending

Today I arrived at approximately 8:02 AM which is 2 minutes later than I should be here and which is also about 45 minutes later than I usually arrive. I've never been late to work in my three years of teaching except for this morning.. I'm actually usually never late anywhere. Off the bat, one of my lovely (a real gem) students told me I didn't match today. I took off my pink coat and she was seriously offended. "Miss Janes, that does not match." I asked her why not and she told me that white does not match my "whatever those things you wear all the time." humm.. a cardigan? She is also the one who asked me today what a fire hydrant was...I'll take her fashion advice with a grain of salt I suppose...


I took it was cute?



I was so excited that my bangles from Southern Stones arrived a couple days ago!  If you are looking to bangle I would highly recommend her. She is so sweet and has fast shipping. She is totally affordable as well. Find her on the gram.

We also started MAP testing today which went pretty smoothly. Must be something with 5th graders---they are ole' pros by now. The first morning of MAP testing is always special to me. For three years of my career I've always had my parents write letters of encouragement to their child and every year these letters bring lots of smiles (and sometimes tears). (You can see last year's post here)



This year I modified the parent letter on Smart Little Cookies since 5th graders probably wouldn't be that into it:)  I would really encourage you to do this, you'd be surprised which parents really step it up---EVEN the ones you haven't heard from all year long:)


 A few ladies showing off their parent letters and pictures!

Next up on the plate: All grade levels are getting $1,200 to spend on curriculum for next school year AND we need help! Next fall I'll be teaching 2nd grade and I don't know what I already have or what I need!!


I would really like to purchase about 5 books that could be used as read alouds for teaching specific skills, using the book list above. I'd like to put these books in tubs in my cabinet already sorted so I can just pull them out when needed.

Anyone teaching second have something they love and can't live without? PLEASE TELL ME NOW!! We have no curriculum whatsoever. ANYTHING GOES.

Is anyone willing to share their set up of their second grade day? I'd love to see a detailed version of your schedule:) Happy test taking!
