I worked Monday, had Tuesday off due to the Polar Vortex and 9 degree temperatures (too cold to go to school!), had a 2-hr delay Wed due to the still early morning cold, worked all day Thursday and then another 2-hr delay on Friday because some ice was on the road. Crazy week of weather.
Even with the disruptions to our schedule, I ensured I taught RW and WW each day. What suffered? I taught math once and science once.
I was able to still launched the Realistic Fiction writing unit using the new Arc of the Story book in the new 4th grade TCRWP Writing kit. I am finishing up the nonfiction reading unit. To celebrate, the students are making a Presentation using Google Apps to teach a few ideas about the topic they read about. Then on Monday I plan to launch the nonfiction narrative unit of study using biographies.
And maybe I should teach some Social Studies and try to figure out how to teach math better...
Happy New Year!
