It's November. What Am I Teaching?

How can it possibly be November? I am not ready.  For me, November means formal assessments.  I feel like I have to squeeze in as much teaching and as many standards before I formally assess each child 1-1 on a gazillion skills.

Today, I am going to share my schedule as well as the resources that I use to help supplement my teaching.  Many of the wonderful resources come from you; fabulous and talented teachers who teach by day and create by night.  I am in awe of your dedication and passion.

I am required to teach this as my core Language Arts curriculum.  As a result, my mornings are very full.   

Language Arts Additions
These are activities that we will complete during our Language Arts portion of the day in lieu of doing a workbook page a day.  Instead, we will complete several workbook pages on one or two days to make time for these.

Math Work Stations
These stations will be used all month long.  I will add a few of my own teacher created items like this one.

Daily 5
During our Daily 5 time, these two items are in our weekly rotation.  As students complete them, they immediately go into each student's Book Box to read.

Social Studies
Our focus is on Thanksgiving.  During this time of day, we read, write and create together.   I use lots of anchor charts and songs to develop language and support learning.

Three times a week, our neediest kindergarteners receive intervention support which focuses on one or two skills.  Our entire team supports each other and our students. Every three weeks we progress monitor and change groups as needed.  Students love this time and so do I.  This time, forces you to think outside of the box to keep kids engaged.  This time is fast paced.  We play games, move around, write with shaving cream in addition to using these resources.


Whew! I am not sure about you but I am exhausted just thinking about all that we accomplish in a week.

Take a look at what others are doing here.
