Well, since the year has started I have been absent from the blog world. It has been really good so far.

I have a great class this year. We are going to be able to do tons of stuff!

I am at 22 and I hope we won't get any after Labor Day.

I am getting used to our new schedule, I was only late for music once!

I have been DRA testing, introducing technology, and getting our procedures in place.  =)

We have a math screener and ISIP next week.

Here are the things I love about our day:

1. Writing in the morning  Photo Prompts

2. Morning Flipchart with ActivVotes
 These are fully interactive and I am willing to share. Email me at rmorris at mesquiteisd dot com if you want them!
Week 3 Everyday Routine

3. Literacy Stations

4. Math
I love teaching math. I don't have anything to share, but I just had to add this!  =)

I really love the idea of using photos to inspire writing. I have a few students that LOVE writing and can sit there and write for hours. However, most of my class is used to doing writing prompts where they are only told what to write. They don't know how to use their imagination in writing. We are currently working on ways to find inspiration for writing, but it is a work in progress to say the least!

I was wondering if you would be willing to share some of these pictures?

I'd love a copy of your flipchart for my SmartBoard! I love the photos, I've found that nothing gets my 2nd graders writing like responding to a cool picture! thanks so much!

I love your photo writing prompt images! They are so great! I can't wait to see what my students write! I am also your newest follower! :-)

Thank you for sharing your idea, using the photo prompts for writing. My students struggle with using their imagination, and I think this would be very helpful in getting them to stretch their imagination. If you would be willing to share that would be wonderful! Thanks!
