So, since school has started I have been crazy busy with teaching my 27 first grade Superheroes, grade level chair, preparing for a conference session at GRA (in Macon, GA this September), trying to finish my Teacher Support Specialist Endorsement, and collaborating with amazing a EIP teacher and a wonderful PL person at the BOE to teach the Reading Endorsement classes to other fellow teachers! Crazy and busy right? However, I have been working on, what feels like forever, a unit titled, "Punctuation Palooza!" I am so excited to share it with you!!!!

So we have started school and have done so many activities this past week! Check it out:
After reading, David Goes to School by David Shannon, we created are own rules for our classroom (adapted from Melonheadz)!
Then we read a great book about tattling called, The Bad Case of the Tattle-Tale Tongue. Next, we came up with ideas when it would be a good time to tattle and when it would not be.
On Wednesday, we read the book, Lacey Walker Nonstop Talker, and learned when we should chat and when were times we should not chat to others. We also discussed why it was important to listen.
We also did some really great graphing that made afternoon carpool a little bit easier!
