Recent Lessons from Advanced Practicum

I've been a bit  A LOT M.I.A lately but I just have to say...oh my word! It's not like I didn't believe teachers before, but I guess you just don't fully understand until you've experienced it yourself...THERE'S NO TIRED LIKE TEACHER TIRED!!! It just creeps up on you! At least for me it does. I'm good all day around the kiddies, as well as, after school. Then BAM! It hits me in the car or as soon as I walk through the door.

Needless to say, I wouldn't trade my time in the classroom for the world! I absolutely love it! It's hard to believe I only have TWO more weeks left of my advanced practicum. It feels like just yesterday I was terrified of what this year would become!

This week has been filled with teaching, planning, more planning, and applying for LOTS of jobs. If ya'll have any advice for a newbie teacher...send it my way!

Anyways, I just wanted to share a few SMART lessons that I've done with my grade twos. You can see a preview here or find them at my TPT store here.

This SMART lesson was part of our geometry unit. I had students pick a shape, identify it, name two attributes of the shape and then drag it to the correct spot on the chart. It was a great activity, met the outcomes and the students loved it! 

This SMART lesson was used as a mini lesson for literacy. We were concentrating on letter blends EI.   This lessons discusses the old saying "I before E except after C". There is a bin for "EI", "IE", and "Garbage". Students must choose a word, decide if it fits the old saying/is spelled correctly. If it is, it goes in the "EI" or "IE" bin. If it's not, the word is put in the garbage bin.

Let me know what you think! I would love your feedback!
