Before I get to my November Currently...I have posted a new item that I use with my kids to help them identify the form, audience, and purpose of a piece of writing. It's called FAP IT! After students identify the form, audience, and purpose for a piece of writing OR for a prompt they are going to respond to (ex. On-Demand prompts) then they can press their "FAP" button and answer aloud or tell a partner!
My students LOVE this activity! There are FAP buttons to laminate and 6 different sets of FAP cards for the students to fill out. I use this as a whole-group activity, partner work, and at my Work on Writing station.
Check it out HERE!
Now on to the CURRENTLY! I love the beginning of each month because I think these are so fun!
I am currently listening to the Notre Dame football game...my husband is a HUGE fan and gets way too into the games!! So I just work on school work because it's just a game right?!?
I have sooo many papers to grade! I can't wait for Tuesday to get here so I can get stuff done! And Vote, of course!
Christmas is my FAVORITE time. I mean I want to pull my decorations out now and put them up! Don't get me wrong, I love Thanksgiving, but it's so hard fitting in all of my family in two days!
I am wanting a new pair of TOMS, but seriously their are so many colors, I can't just pick one!
I am needing someone to grade all of these writing pieces!!! Any takers out there?
Being that I drive about 30 minutes to school everyday I need a good CD because radio talk shows get real old in the mornings! So I currently have Kenny Chesney's new CD in my car. I love it!
Link up with Oh' Boy 4th Grade!
Have a great Day!
