📚 Which novel are you most excited to read as a class this year? 📚nnIt's the time of year when you are solidifying plans for your novel studies, and I've put together a checklist of items to consider as you compile your book lists! What am I missing? I'd love to hear what you would add to the list. https://teachingwithamountainview.com/how-to-select-novels-in-upper-elementary/
I looooove having the task cards that I use on a daily basis in such a handy place! The top row includes all of my reading response task cards, and the bottom two rows are my new mental math task cards! I've always done mental math with my students, but I decided it would be MUCH easier to have them ready to go and scaffolded to use all year!

Heyyy there! 👋 What are YOU teaching this year?nnYou may have noticed that I'm back in the school this year, and I'm so excited. I'm one of the gifted facilitators at my school (which is also where my kids go!), and I can't wait to share more about what we are doing this year. The content here on IG won't change much from what you're used to... I'll just be throwing in a few tips for enrichment and differentiation from time to time. I hope everyone has had a wonderful first few weeks of school!

I'm cheering you on this week... may the attendance odds be in your favor every day! 🤞👑
Raise your hand if your kids go to (or went to) the same school where you teach. 🙋🏼♀️🙋🏼♀️ If I’m being honest, I was worried this would be the year they stopped the hugs and excited “Mommy!!” waves in the hall, but so far, I’ve had a lot of both, and I hope they never stop. 😭😭
