I don’t have lots of pictures to share this week. For the past two weeks I feel like I’ve been out of my classroom more than in. My district is adopting a new math textbook and I am one of dozens of lucky teachers who get to serve on the selection committee. So every week I have to leave school early and attend a meeting. Can I just say selecting a textbook for the entire school system is extremely hard.
And I also have to admit that after the tornadoes it’s been hard getting my focus back on school. I don’t feel like myself, my creativity has hit a wall, and I’ve been kinda going through the motions. I know that’s bad but I’m hoping to do some blog and Pinterest stalking to get the gears cranked up again. But driving through my neighborhood every morning looking at the destruction is difficult.
Okay, that’s enough self pity for one post and I know you don’t what to hear my sad little story, so on to the real teacher stuff.
I’ve gotten lots of e-mails about my Number Talk/Spiral Review papers.
I don’t sell them on TpT..but I am giving you a sample. I uploaded it in Word but then they looked all crazy…so I saved them as a PDF. I wanted very much to give them to you as a template so you could change what you wanted to suit your needs, but alas the trials of technology.
I uploaded one from the first of the year, the middle of the year and my most current one.
