This is the last week of my #NWP. Boooooo…..
Today’s daily journals were Lynda and myself! She took Rachel’s Earth Science lesson to heart and sectioned her journal with the layers of the earth. VERY cool. 🙂
I used Xtranormal to create a video for my journal. It might not be too funny to you, but if you had been with us last Thursday….well, you would know ALL about it!
The teacher demonstration for the day was-yep, you guessed it. ME. Boy was I nervous. I mean it’s one thing to teach kids, but to get up in front of your peers! #bitingnails #sicktostomach
My lesson was on writing haiku poems. Here’s a picture of our published haikus:
And in case you have nothing else to do-here is an outline for my lesson.
During our Reading, Researching, and Writing time I continued to read Jeff Anderson’s book-Mechanically Inclined.
He’s got such great and authentic ideas about weaving grammar into writing!!! Definitely a must read!
For our round table discussion we talked a little about AP classes and Dual Enrollment classes. In my opinion, because you asked :), if I was a high school student contemplating which one to do, I would go with Dual Enrollment. Here’s why. For the AP class you have to pass the test. The ONE test. If you don’t you don’t get credit. With Dual Enrollment you have to make a C or above. YOU do the math. 🙂
And on that note, or this note, I just had to take a picture of the secretary’s office for the Writing Dept at JSU. She had her day ALL PLANNED OUT AND ORGANIZED!
She is a godsend!! 🙂
