Monday Made It

Happy Monday!

I finished my quick checks!
I've since been working on the entrance and exit slips, but they're taking a long time-I only have three (out of 15) chapters fully done.

 I was inspired by Kelli at Tales of a Tenacious Teacher to redo my grading posters, but with a sea twist!
I did organize the sea animals by the depth levels where they live, as we keep going deeper into our learning ; ) (I do know that whales dive deep, but they have to come up to the surface to breathe).

I plan on doing examples of each level with the kids on what it looks like, and posting them next to it.

I also typed up the Mathematical Practice standards in a kid friendly way. I tried to word them so that they wouldn't only apply to the math, but to everything.
We also have two other new teachers in our building, and I felt a little guilty making a welcome basket for our new upper grades teacher and not the others-so I made a smaller welcome gift!

I hope they enjoy it!

Have a wonderful week!

Smiles and Sunshine,
