Here are the Math Power Pics for k-2. I have to go through the rest of the 2nd and 3rd grade powerpics but thought I would share what is done so far. Can't wait to print and plan out my Power Pic wall :)
So I have officially been out of school since Wednesday but have been moving classrooms so I was at school Thursday, Friday and today (we have a church that meets at our school each Sunday). I have my old and new classroom ready to be cleaned this week, stacks of stuff in both rooms in the corners so the carpet can get a good cleaning. I can't wait for the cleaning to be finished because I have my new room all planned out so that is can be a Model WholeBrainTeaching classroom. Want to join in the fun and have experts guide you through the school year using WBT? Hop over and grab the latest ebook WBT Model Classrooms
It will give you all the info and a sneak peak at Sentence Ladder, a new WBT component that will have your students writing super charged sentences in no time.
I am not liking how Google docs is working so I'm going to try sharing the ELA power pics with Scribd. I know my district blocks Scribd but hope it will be easier to download for you. Be sure to download the original PowerPics from Whole Brain Teacher to have the directions on how to teach with these.
Here are the draft ELA Common Core Standards Power Pics. I have to organize by standard so that is how these are arranged. All standards are taken from http://www.corestandards.org/the-standards/english-language-arts-standards/, PowerPics and text taken from the WBT PowerPic ebooks. You will notice page numbers and headings that are from the original PowerPics. I hope you find these useful, please post a comment if you do :)
Taking a break from repord cards to play with the layout of my blog again. I think I will keep this one for a while :) If you are new to Whole Brain Teaching or just want to be up on all things WBT be sure to visit and bookmark the links in the top left. These are the official WBT links where you can download ebooks, visit the forum to chat with other WBT'ers, get info on FREE conferences and of course watch WBT in action through videos. The blog list on the right will lead you to other WBT blogs where teachers are sharing their experiences with WBT. It is wonderful to read and share with follow WBT'ers on the web.
As I was working on my final report cards I noticed something interesting, attendance. Once we started playing SuperSpeed to start the day my tardies went way down. Think I will start that as Morning Work earlier in the year next year :)
This is the last full week of school in my school district then we have Monday and a half day Tuesday. We are still teaching and testing in my class. Variation has been key since our late spring break. Different score boards, especially Mystery Road have helped and Mind Soccer.
To prevent summer sliding I have made a Super Summer folder for my students. It is a simple pocket folder with Super Math in one pocket and SuperSpeed reading in the other. I am typing a simplified direction sheet for the cover for parents so students don't forget how to play. I put the Super Math in a page protector so students can write with expo pens then correct. I will try to take pictures this week before the folders go home with the students.
