mapping the Math in Focus lessons for my grade, so I started working on the rest of my project.
I think I bit off more than I can chew!
My original goal was to create entrance and exit slips for each lesson, accompanying task cards, video lessons and quick checks for each chapter.
Yeah, that's a lot.
So right now, I am focusing on the quick checks!
I decided to do 3-4 assessments for each chapter, all having the same types of problems, so we can see the growth from beginning to end-and have a mid-chapter check if needed!
|This chapter only has 3 because I was DONE fiddling around with the graphs! :)|
Next, I think I'm going to work on the entrance/exit slips. I decided to do 3 for each lesson-as some lessons take more than one day, and the skills can be scaffolded (so my higher kids could get a 3-star one and the lower kids a 1-star one).
I like doing the entrance/exit slips together because I can take the exit slip from the previous day and make it the next day's entrance slip :)
|End of Day 1 Exit|
|Formats start of Day 2!|
I'm putting the videos on the back burner for right now-I don't know if I'll have the tech to implement it, so I'm not going to start something that won't be used!
|Yes, I know it says Speaking & Speaking-it's been fixed and reprinted :)|
I also took the Common Core standards and typed them up horizontally. I had them vertically, but everything else in the planner is horizontal.
Of course, I had to make them pretty :)
I also included the Next Gen Science standards-although I don't know if we are switching to that or not (I do think we will be in the near future), my intention is to keep this planning guide for a few years and not have to remake it every year.
Since I know very well what it is like coming into a new school/district, and that I've already met her and she's on my floor, I put together a little welcome basket for her.
I picked up the basket at the Dollar Tree, and then raided Target's dollar spot and back to school section for the rest!
I tried to include some 'must haves', as well as some fun things!
|Favorite pens, and Expos, post-it notes, thank you cards and some bookmarks!|
I hope she likes it!
Have a wonderful week!
