Hi, I'm Fern from Fern Smith's Classroom Ideas!
So, Common Core Standards...
you know you have heard about it for awhile, right?
Well, get ready, it is coming! I'm so excited!
This week we have already had our first Common Core Leadership Meeting, I know, I know it is summer, but our principal rocks and we had a little pizza party with the meeting!
Food is always an excellent item to have on the agenda, don't you think?
Our school's plan to roll it out with a theme, DO FIVE THINGS WELL. That way everyone, including the Leadership Team, is not too overwhelmed, quits and then we do everything poorly!
I think it is a great idea and I'm looking forward to the five things we pick. I know one will be Singapore Math. The sixth grade teacher, my partner teacher & I have been doing it for an entire year and we've had great results. Now it is time for the entire school to be trained. Have you tried it? What did you think?
Well, I'm excited about this journey and I can't wait to share it with you!
I'm currently the 3rd grade team leader, Teacher of the Year and blog addict!
I ♥love♥ new followers!
