I would say about half of my kids are independently chugging along on their All About books... but about half still need some guidance. Today I was very thankful for post-its. I went around to all of my kids who were struggling a bit and sat down to plan out their whole book. Together, we put post-its on each page on what was suppose to go on that page (what header... or picture). This helped put a visual on what they need to do and I hope the rest of their book will go much smoother!
Our goal is to publish next week, adding different components each day. I will update pictures as their books near publishing status!
In other news, its spring time which means its my time to start thinking about next year! I always do this, do any of you? I have so many goals for next year... I love that teaching is something you can always improve upon year after year. I am excited to start out a new year with new systems for things. I have been very inspired by other blogs and teachers pay teachers. My big goal for next year is to create thematic weeks. My kids love centers now, but I feel I could start to follow a theme. I am going to start trying to plan that out now so I can start working on it. Maybe if I write my goal here, I will actually do it? Here's to motivation!
