A new month means time to link up with Farley's Currently!
It might not be the most excited thing, but I always start the morning with the local news. Around these crowded parts, it is always good to check out the traffic before the morning commute!
My first observation is already over! Since I had spent most of September testing, I only had one week of teaching my new students under my belt before I got observed. It was kindergarten, too! I think everything went well and I am glad to have it done. Today is my post conference. Fingers crossed!
Can you keep a secret? The other reading specialist and I are going to dress up as Echo the Owl from Fundations for Halloween. It is going to AWESOME, but we want it to be a surprise. Now, we just have to actually get it together...
One of the tough parts of being a reading specialist is all of the unknown and the lack of control. My schedule changes each year. We are still trying to finish up my schedule, even though I have started teaching already in some rooms!
I really need to get moving on putting up my fall decorations. I love all of the fun decorations for this time of year. I just have to make sure I don't go overboard. You might say I have a bit of an obsession with fall...
I just finished tweaking the lesson plan template for my upper elementary guided reading groups. It is a fillable pdf. I hope you find it useful!
Can't wait to see what everyone else is up to!
