I actually had to wake up this morning, get showered, dress and leave the house. Can you believe that non-sense??? I had to attend mandatory training for our new reading textbook adoption. OK, indulge my rant. What do districts continue to spend MILLIONS on these textbook adoptions???? They’re horrible. HORRIBLE. They include worksheets (um, how many of us would use those? And if I were using a worksheet/workbook while being evaluated I would be scored so low!), and workbooks, more workbooks. And yes more worksheets. I really don’t get it. They’re very low quality materials and do not help students learn to read. Let’s take those millions of dollars and distribute it to the CLASSROOM TEACHERS so they can spend it on materials THEY NEED AND WANT for their classroom! Yeah…that would be GOOD and would make sense…That’s my political rant for the day…now on to Monday Made It!
Guess what my classroom theme is this year?? Yep. Mustaches. With a side of glitter.
Since I cannot get into my classroom until July 22(which gives me 5 days to unpack, organize, clean, set up and decorate my new room) I am trying to knock out as many projects as I can at home, including my clip chart!
