I keep putting off opening that big bag of correcting. I did a lot during the week, but there's NEVER enough time to finish everything. I'll be on the couch with my cup of correcting pens, a cup of tea, my lap desk, and many piles of papers for a good portion of the day! I'll probably turn on Gilmore Girls. I've seen all the episodes, so it won't matter if I'm not really paying attention. The background noise will make me feel like I'm not REALLY working.
My students are working on writing narratives from a turkey's point of view. So far they've written entertaining beginnings, a description of the setting, and suspense. Next up? The main event! Since I don't know of any mentor texts that are exactly what I'm looking for, I will be writing my own main event to share as a model.
At the moment, I have no ingredients for lunches this week. I need to head to the store and purchase salad fixings and other staples.
I have plenty of noun activities, but none are Thanksgiving-themed. Perhaps I'll feel creative and make something. We'll see!
I'm sorry to say that the bulletin board in my classroom still has our mathematicians from August! It's time for a change. I'm not sure yet what's going up there, but I need to think of something!
Have a good week! Stop by The Teaching Trio for more Sunday Scoops.
