Happy Friday! I managed to get the date correct this week, so I must be moving in the right direction! Also, my husband has been working at the U.S. STEM festival in DC all week. It actually starts today and runs through Sunday. I am going to take my toddler there, and if you live nearby, you should go! Here are some of my favorite posts from this week:
- I really like Kristy’s post on differentiation especially her beginner or advanced commercial activity.
- Speaking of differentiation, Carrie posted on how she divides her group and how they read in smaller groups in several posts. Check out what she is doing with novels!
- I love Justin’s twists on embedded readings! They also just make storytelling more engaging!
- Finally, another interesting post on what is a proficiency teacher. These discussions are interesting, and I would venture to say that we have more in common than we think.
A look into my previous posts this week:
- A reflection on my blended class! I made the change this year to just blogging once and using Zaption the other day, and my students have been much happier!
- I frequently use these internet scavenger hunts for my students as an interpretive reading activity.
- Here was one of my first ventures into dropping the vocabulary list.
- After I attended an edcamp, I blogged about incorporating mindfulness into your classroom.
- I blogged about commercials in the Spanish that I discovered as well as a quick eating and drinking speaking activity that I did.
- I use this cooperative warm-up in classes still (from 2013!)
