This was my view for those 10 days... Awesome right?!!!?!!!
So now that I'm back, it's time to get some work done. I start tutoring on Tuesday. This week will be devoted to getting to know the kiddos that I haven't yet worked with. I will be doing some grade level skills assessments and some quick checks just to determine what skills I need to focus on with each kiddo. This is my first year working part time in the summer and my first time tutoring a large number of one-on-one groups. I have 16 kiddos that I meet with each week... Yikes!!! I am postin' up shop at the Barnes & Noble right by our school. I sure hope they still don't mind me being there once they really see that I will really be there about 6 hours a day, 3 days a week (I talked to the manager awhile ago and he said he didn't care, but I'm still worried).
I have been reading "Now I Get It" by Joan Lazar & Christine Vogel.
I have read quite a bit of it, but decided to go back and go chapter by chapter and make some activities to go along with the strategies. I am hoping to make activities to post on TPT that go along with the strategies suggested in the book. I have contacted the authors in hopes that they will approve and will hopefully have a pack of the first strategy completed soon!
I am sure most of you have seen this pin on Pinterest:
Yep... I'm doing it. Monday starts my 21 day challenge, and I will keep you posted on how I'm doing. If anyone else would like to join me, we could definitely be a helpful support to each other!
I will also be doing some major organization at my house this summer. We have some minor reorganization in both bathrooms, a major overhaul in the basement, and emptying out the office, restoring the deck and livening up the deck/patio area, and next week... drum roll please... the downstairs closet! I'm thinking something like this.... except I have way more stuff so who knows!
Wish me luck!
