Summer Vacation!!!

We are sure hoping you are all having a fantastic summer vacation!!  Julie and I are doing our share of traveling this year!!!  


My family took a fun and carefree trip to Disney!! My twins graduate and my wacky boy is 12--so it was a new and fun experience with older kids!!!

 It is a bit surreal to look at these pictures as I also have some when they were all so tiny and that feels like just last year!! We are actually lucky enough to be getting another vacation get away as my son is attending a theater camp in NYC!  My girls and I are going to pal around all day then we are taking in some shows in the evening!!!  Then...maybe then...I will think about school!!

Interactive Root Journal

Something new that we have created is an Interactive Root Journal! This is amazing because it can be used in correlation with Reading Olympians or completely separate! If using separate from Reading O it still gives your students a glimpse into different greek gods and goddesses all while integrating roots into different activities to help students apply their understanding of each root word.

In my classroom I am using the Interactive Journal with Reading O!  My students complete this journal during a rotation of my reading groups.  We complete a set of Reading O in about two weeks so my students have 6 group rotations to complete the journal. Each group has the opportunity complete independently or with a partner.  So far we have completed 4 sets in our journal- Nike, Poseidon, Athena, and Nemesis.  Next week we will be completed the final set in the Interactive Journal!
