Conferences...this week

My district has finally scheduled conferences before the 1st quarter is over.   I have been busy...getting fluency passages, MAP scores, state assessments from last year, and running off grades.  Tuesday and Wednesday will be hectic because the staff will teach all day and conference for 4 hours each,  in the evenings.

Does your district conference midterm or at the quarter?

What do you add to the conference?

Do you get comp time for extra hours worked?

Word Work


Last week we talked about synonyms and antonyms in our writing...this is more fun (making a mini poster) than completing a worksheet.

Welcome Bags

Welcome bags are ready for students on Tuesday.  What's in the bag?

  • homework pass for September
  • highlighter
  • post-it-notes
  • candy
  • small note pad
  • pencil
Our first day is until 1:10...I'm sure the students will be tired...I will!

Do you have any special activities for the first day?  I always plan too much, but I think this is better than not enough.

Happy 2014-2015 School Year to everyone!

Birthday Gift

I have a teacher friend that is getting a portfolio from http://www.doodlebugspaper.com , as soon as she can decide on the design and name for the front.  I bought one a few years back and I love tucking it my purse when attending a meeting where I need to take notes.
