Peek at My Week - Jan 12

I am so proud of myself! I am back for another week to link-up with Ms. Wills Kindergarten for a Peek at My Week!

Unfortunately I don't have any pictures or a great deal to say about last week - In my K group one student was absent all week and we had a delay which cancels my first grade group - so basically the teaching I actually did... didn't completely follow my plans.  BUT I felt so much more ready for the week than I have all year!

I will try to remember to take notes and pictures this week so next week I can do a review!

First up this week is Kindergarten.  Bonus - I'm planned out for the next two weeks!  I did this because Monday is a holiday so I took a chunkier unit (body parts) and broke it up into 2 - 4 day sessions with one day at the end to put all the pictures in our dictionary (the kids love doing this!)
You'll notice "Play Simon Says" is on here a lot - The kids love leading Simon Says it's both vocabulary and speaking practice and whenever I do a Body Unit we play a lot! (Even when I did it with 3rd, 4th and 5th one year!)

Next up is first grade.  To make up for the fact that I am planned 2 weeks out for K - I am not planned for first on Friday (*sigh*)  Granted I have a general outline for the unit - but no written plans yet.  That is Monday's goal!  (I'm writing it down on my to-do list and everything!)
I have fewer TPT materials for this unit - but I am using my Oxford Picture Dictionary for the Content Areas for Kids a lot this unit.  Folks - this is a great resource for ESL/ELL kiddos.  It is by no means perfect and I find myself adapting or supplementing a lot, but it is a really, really good base!

Ok I need to pack my lunch and school bag and get out my clothes for tomorrow!

Head over to Ms. Wills Kindergarten to see what everyone else will be doing this week!

Peek at my Week!

When I started blogging this summer I came across Mrs.Wills Kindergarten's weekly link-up: Peek at my Week, and I said to myself: YES! I will do that! - guess what? It didn't happen.  There were a few reasons which I won't go into, but the good news:  I did it for this coming week!

I only typed up plans for K and 1.  I'm starting off slow...
