Sunday Scoop 11.1.15

Well it's that time of the week again and I'm linking up with the lovely ladies over at Teaching Trio for the Sunday Scoop to help to focus my mind! 

Not that we do lots of worksheets because we don't but I am useless at getting the work stuck in the books asap once its been marked….3 weeks later and a pile the size of a house has appeared in my 'marked work' box!! 

We have been doing AR since September and up until now we have just been using the quizzes and test but are set to get the competitive/ self motivation side of it up and running- I've found some lovely clip charts over on TPT but need to put a plan together for how I'm going to disseminate the info to the rest of the staff- any ideas would be very welcome!

IT IS THE WORST!!! I hate having to unpack my case, get the washing done, sort out all of my make-up and jewellery etc but I suppose there has to be a downside to holidays just to even the awesomeness out!

I love teaching GR and have a blog post planned for next week but I often find I am planning the session the night before I deliver it so this weekend I have brought all of the texts I am using this half-term home with me and shall endeavour to have the sessions planned and support materials printed before the night is over- wish me luck!

As I was away for NYE I've not met up with my girls since Christmas Eve and I am desperate to hear all of their gossip- cuppas and cake are a must!

My wonderful little sister is 25 this week but as we live 3 hours away from each other I will have to wait until the weekend to celebrate with her but flowers and a card are all preordered to surprise her on the day- single mums rock and need a little spoiling too! 

I am entering this week with a PMA…I've planned a whole Space Camp themed Numeracy unit so the little ones should be fully engaged…should!!! 
Here's to a fab one

  1. HUGE good luck getting that guided reading planning done in advance. One of my major achievements of the christmas holidays was doing the whole half terms worth of mine (only to have it messed up the first day back by another teacher changing their timetable...). I've got it straight again though and it makes it so much easier! Enjoy the rest of your week!

  2. Hi Laura! You have a busy Sunday planned! I use AR in my classroom as a goal setting tool. I work with the students and we set goals together. I do not want AR to discourage them from reading. I have a clip chart in my class and it helps the kids to monitor their goals. It is not punitive in any way. AR is not my favorite tool because I've seen teachers use it in a way that turns kids off from reading. I hope your teachers find success with it!

  3. Hi Laura! I have nominated you for a Liebster Award! Check out my post Liebster Award to learn how you can accept your award. Congratulations!


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a line Xx
