Tell Me Something Good

It's mid-week and if your new school year is anything like mine you feel like you can't quite catch your breath!  It's easy to get bogged down with all of the extra "stuff" that seems to pile on with every new year. So today lets focus on the positive. It's time to Tell Me Something Good. Link up with at least one good thing that's happening in your classroom and one good thing that's happening at home!



My Something Good from school:

My students are really using their phonics dance to sound out words and I'm so impressed with how that is changing their writing. And today on our daily 5 rotation to read to self we made it to 11 minutes! That's wild!

My Something Good from home:

My husband and I have made our travel plans for Thanksgiving and we're heading up to Seattle! Holla!
Plus my niece just celebrated her 2nd birthday and she could not be any cuter! 

Now it's your turn to link up your Something Good!

  3. We're at 10 minutes for Read to Self and going for 9 tomorrow with Read to Someone. I'm jazzed with their progress. As tedious as it became reading those anchor charts daily really helped!
