My focus this week in my classroom was organization, de-cluttering and finishing up units so we start new after March Break.
My progress was captured in the photos below.
Many of my anchor charts were looking very tired as they had been created in September. This key one was recreated this week with updated input from my students, who have been working hard on their oral presentation skills.
Thursday and Friday were our assessment days for Pythagorean Theorem. I love finishing a Math unit because the kids feel such a sense of accomplishment of learning new concepts.
My desk and counter area were a disaster! I was so embarassed when my student teacher (pre-service teacher) arrived. I spent break time and after school this week tidying, cleaning and re-working my organizational system. Supply information is located right next to the day's teaching materials. I would love to see how others organize their desk and classroom.
I save exemplars of student work to show future students, but I did not think keeping these items filed in my file cabinet was useful. Inspired by a Pinterest anchor chart binder I created a binder with page protectors to house exemplars for students to reference anytime.
