Well, it has been a long time since I have posted anything. Now that summer is behind us and a new school year has begun it is time to get busy. There have been many changes in my classroom this year. One of the main ones is having 22 students in my room. It is amazing how adding 3 students can make the room feel smaller and change how the room feels. Another change is we are going to be doing the Daily 5, which I am really excited about! We are changing it a little to make it a little easier for kinder, such as making it only 4 days and 4 centers. We also are going to introduce it by taking a little longer then they do in the book. I will let you know how it works out. Then my district is making math centers more along the lines of math workstations, like the Mathwork Stations book by Debbie Dillar. This is nice because I was planning on attempting this anyway this year, so I am a little ahead of the game. If anyone has any suggestions on either one of these management ideas, I would love to hear them. I hope that your school year has started off good!
