Currently #1 of 2016!

It’s here! I hope this new, leap year (oh great an extra day!) will be a great one for you. Here’s my first Currently linky from Oh Boy 4th Grade of the year and the first for this new blog!

So I’ve had 2 weeks off, and they’ve been so needed but I could use just a day or two more to finish planning. Guess I’ll be doing a lot of that tomorrow and Sunday. Today is all about rest and just enjoying the first day of the year.

I need to make some changes in my classroom. I brought in stability balls and later moved my desks into “table” groups. My students have enjoyed the balls and while I really like the groups for partner and small group collaboration, the students have been too disruptive both in my class and, for one group, a management problem when they return to their other class. Monday will be a big day to set the stage for the rest of the year!

Have an suggestions on desk arrangements? I’d love to hear them. Maybe I’ll take some before and after pics to share next week. Enjoy your first day of 2016!

    I’ve done table groups, and am in the process of finishing up my donors choose request for alternatively seating—but currently I have the desks in like a U-shape. One of the classes I teach only has 12 students, so it makes it great for having all eyes on me while teaching, with the U-shape. Wishing you a productive 2016!!!
