We went outside for an extra recess at the end of the day today (we were on a field trip during our lunch/recess time). My kiddos who couldn't do the swinging monkey bars at the beginning of the year are swinging their way across, legs are pumping away on the swings and when the timer went off and they all ran to line up (no chasing after stragglers). Now to be fair, I'm sure they have been doing these things for awhile, I'm just never outside with them (we don't do extra recesses during the winter - it takes too long to get gear on and off).
6 of my smarties wrote all the way to 100 without a 100's chart, and 14 have joined the "100's Club" (being able to count to 100 by 1's, 5's and 10's). They are blossoming into readers too . . . .see?
Working on vocabulary
Finding our vocabulary words in our books
This group of boys were all considered non-proficient (Tier 2 or 3) at the beginning of the school year, now they are all able to read the decodable books that come with our reading curriculum (some of them are not very fluent, but oh well!)
We only have 18 days of school left, hopefully I can make it! I have a LOT of assessing to do in the next 2 weeks!
