Five for Friday and Fabulous Finds

 I'm teaming up with Doodlebugs Teaching and HootnHollers with my Friday Fun Picks.  I hope you enjoy what you see today.

This is a picture from my math interventionists classroom.  On our campus, we are very fortunate this year to add math intervention classes.  The math interventionists, serve 5 to 6 students at a time.  We use several data sources to determine which students need to be served.

Some of the skills we work on right now are basic facts but we will be moving quickly to problem solving.  In Texas, we give the STAAR test and it is a very difficult test.  If you have never seen it, you can download a released test.  The state decided to think "let's make it even harder" so they added a time limit to it too.  Students have to complete a 50+ question test in 4 hours.




I am very blessed to have a strong leadership team.  These wonderful individuals plan effective lessons for the entire grade levels, analyze data, and hope grade level meetings.  I often call them mini-principals.  They are grade level leaders who put a lot of time in helping me make my school run so well.  I couldn't do this job without them.  This picture was taken on Wednesday.  We spent the morning analyzing our STAAR data and making some instructional changes based on that data.



 I hit a record this week on TpT.  My Kindergarten Literacy Centers have become by biggest selling item!  I will always love my kindergarten teaching days.  I have Kindergarten Literacy Centers Part 1 with over 50 pages of activities.  Kindergarten Literacy Centers Part 2 is FREE.  I also have another set called Kindergarten Literacy Centers Part 3.  It was just added yesterday.


50 pages to this new and wonderfully designed Teacher Binder.
The theme is:  One Fine Day
