Intervention Needs!

Three weeks have now come and gone.  I can officially say I am in love with these 27 students.  I have such a hard working group with a verity of personalities and needs.  I have found myself up late over the past few weeks (with a glass of wine in my hand) trying to figure out how I am going to reach the sweet and lows AND also see the rest of my 20 students on a daily basis.  I think I have figured it out.  My plan of attack is small group interventions.  I am going to create as many small group/ hands-on interventions as I can muster.  This will include K-1 skills that still need to be practiced by these little ones.  While they do independent practice I plan on visiting with the rest of my 2nd graders.  I will keep you updated on how this pans out.  Here is my fist creation.  I hope you can use it in your classroom also.

Number Sense

Numbers are hard!  Some kids get it and others have a very hard time seeing the big picture.  I know I did when I was in 2nd grade.  Small number sense groups are a fab way to teach kids where to start when problem solving.  Visual and kinesthetic tools are what seems to work best. 

Best Teaching Blog Ever...and Most Funny!

Welcome to the best teaching blog in the world. You have a front row seat to my 2nd grade classroom and nonstop wit.  I plan to make this site more snazzy once I have more coin.  School just started and I Visa is maxed out from buying pencil toppers and colored ink for my printer....which, will both will be gone in a week.
If you choose to follow me, and I hope you do, plan on many free product updates and belly laughs.  I have great (exaggerated) stories from my teaching.

My first free product backs up my love for Math Workshop.  Math Workshop has turned my students thinking and data around.  As the weeks fly by this school year you will be able to see first hand the unbelievable power of students learning from each other.  Hope you enjoy my first of many freebies!
