Whole Brain Teaching rules

So I found out I was going to be teaching 3rd grade ELA next year and I am very excited. However, so much for my summer I will be busy making things for my students. I am diving in BIG time next year.....incorporating Common Core, Daily 5, Cafe, and Whole Brain Teaching....yes I am crazy  ambitious.I am still working on my Common Core "I can" posters. I made my Whole Brain Teaching rule posters today and thought I would share.

Entering into the world of blogging

I LOVE the world of teacher blogs. It is such a wonderful and giving community. I have finally decided to be a part of it and contribute some of the work that I do. I have been doing a lot of research and I have decided to implement the Daily 5 in my classroom for next year. I will still be required by my school to use the basal but that is the great thing about the Daily 5, you can use it no matter your situation. Here is a poster/anchor chart I created for Stamina....I thought it would be good for a 1st post. I am also working on Common Core posters but who knows how long those will take me. I will, however, post them when I am done.
