This week marks the end of my summer. What a way to end it though. I got up early, cleaned the pool and lazed around all morning long. I finished reading "Catching Fire" and I am counting the days until "Mockingjay" is released (29).
I have contemplated mapping out my new year. I will be teaching just English and Spelling so you would think that I would have already knocked out my curriculum map. Nope...
I do know that I will spend time on three blocks and rotate them. We will focus on grammar, writing, and novel studies. I will keep my unit on poetry using "Love That Dog".
I believe I will wait and make my lesson plans after we meet as a grade on Thursday. I am really interested in this meeting. We will address how we are going to go from self-contained to departmentalized. It will be interesting and I have so many questions!
