This teaching two grades at once is kicking my behind. Majorly. Today, I spent 4 hours at school working and a couple more hours at home. Just when I think I have the hang of it, I have to add something else to mix. Ahhh! Hopefully next year when I just teach one grade it will seem like a breeze.
Daily 5 is going really well for us so far- this is my first year implementing it. We've made our Read to Self goal and we're almost to our Writing goal. We're working on Read to Someone, but I haven't yet introduced Listening or Word Work. I hope to add them in the next two weeks. My kiddos are amazing me at what they are able to do so far!
*****************Last week, I saw Rowdy is Room 300's post about iFontMaker for iPad. I had been wanting to download this app forever, but I was hesitant because it was $7. I'm cheap when it comes to apps, but since she gave it such a good review I decided I needed to check it out.
Here is what I have so far. I've started another really fun one, but it's taking awhile. I will post it when I'm finished.
You can click on the words under each picture to download them for free. If you use it for anything, please link it back to me. You can use it for free items, personal use, or commercial. Hope you like them!
