I'm sitting next to another huge pile of laminate, waiting to be cut out (except this time there aren't any pictures ;) I've printed out about 5 centers (times 3 sets for each one), and was able to cut it out and laminate it myself.
(I'm actually a little OCD (or should we say control freak) on how I laminate and cut out my centers/ important stuff (to me). We actually have volunteers who can cut out and laminate things...but I don't want them to do my centers....I like my way better :)
In between runs to the laminator, I did do some actual teaching today. I finished a States of Matter foldable that we started yesterday...and moved back a really fun lab because they couldn't control the talking today. We'll see how they do tomorrow, and we may do it Thursday or Friday (it'll also give me some time to pick up the supplies for lab!)
I also introduced the strategy that we are going to be working on for the next couple of weeks. The reading series has us working with fix-up strategies, so I modeled a Think Aloud for them today (and yesterday too, but they didn't realize it). Tomorrow we'll do a Think Along, and then they are on their own.
Of course, I created an anchor chart to help us :)
Sweater and Pants: JCPenny
I really like this sweater, because I was able to find it in a petite size, which is almost unheard of for me to find. I don't have to fold up or roll up the sleeves because they are the perfect length for me. I love JCPenny for affordable, professional clothes (that come in petite and don't require alterations)!! :)
