A BIG BLOGGING THANK YOU!!!
Just wanted to thank everyone who left comments and welcomed me to the world of blogging. It will be challenging, but I am excited about it. I am still trying to visit and "follow" my fellow bloggers, but I am not sure if I have it down yet. I have tried to add a few things to my simple blog, and I think it looks a little better. Knowing myself all too well, it will only be a matter of time before I have researched every blog, template, and design:) Just need to keep the focus on the content and not the fluff for a bit!
Since we are still "busy," cleaning out and reorganizing are not possible. I thought that I would share the only board that I left up. It is for their SRI (Scholastic Reading Inventory) and shows their growth (Lexiles) since August. My 6th graders are with me for all subjects and Read 180/System 44, and my 7th graders are with me just one period. They have been done so well this year, that I had to brag a little. This board is just for my 6th graders.

The blurry blue parts next to the individual growth are their names. Two of them are hidden behind the computers. Our district expects each secondary student to grow 150 Lexiles during the year in Read 180 or System 44. Most of my students have blown right past that expectation - in March! They are so excited to take the May/End of the Year SRI in a few weeks! Just in case you are wondering, there were 27 students in my class in March. There are 30 students with me now - a little higher than your normal Read 180 class, but I have them for most of the day.
Thanks for letting me brag a little about my students! Next time, I will let you have a peek at the Read 180 notebooks that I am working on!
