As always, I'm in complete shock that another month has come and gone. I'm happy to welcome April, though, because that means the temperatures should finally start mellowing out. Our Easter actually turned out really nice. No coat = Happy Sam! To celebrate April, I'm linking up with Farley at Oh Boy! 4th Grade for her April Currently!
They are all pretty self explanatory, so no need to go in depth for you!
I usually try to post about something else on a "Currently" day, so you're not left without something educational to read. I so wish I could do that for you! I've been working on about a million different projects, a little at a time, so I've got lots of Works In Progress(es?) going on! I do have some news to share with you though!
I'm super excited because.... AS WE SPEAK... Megan from A Bird in Hand Designs is working on a Custom Blog Design for me! I'm so excited to step out of this little Blog Outfit I've worn since I started in August and into something Fresh and ADORABLE! :)
ALSO, sometime this week, I plan on starting a Monthly linky that I would LOVE LOVE LOVE for you to come link up to! It will be a way for us to get to know each other a little better and give us the opportunity to share some things going on in our classrooms at the same time. Check back soon for...
And lastly, if you made it this far... I've got a little freebie for you -- nothing special but perhaps it could help you out a little when you're exploring non-fiction texts! We've been working on Summarizing and Paraphrasing for the past few weeks, and I've been using this little guy as an assessment piece.
