Today was my first day of teacher work week and I have to say I am extremely lucky. I have a small group of wonderful coworkers and I think I have successfully memorized each name. Anyways, we took a field trip for some team building activities that we will be doing with our "advisories" next week. Advisory is kind of like homeroom but I meet with my advisory twice a week for 40 minutes. Over the course of the year, we do a service learning project together. It sort of serves as a family base at the school. The activities that my kids will be doing next week were fun but also meaningful.
When you enter this classroom ...
You are mathematicians
You are a friend
You are explorers
You are important
You are loved
You are respected
You are the reason
We are here!
Love, Miss Rudolph
I had found the fonts through all those free font services on pinterest and just played around with it. It's another cheap classroom decoration to make and it's also a really cute and different door decoration idea.
I also have to start working on my unit learning targets more so. I had mentioned that I was teaching Algebra 2 and Trigonometry classes this semester and so far, I have learning targets for the first unit of each. Goal: Complete a list of all learning targets for each unit. Then, Calendar. Then, Lessons. I think it can be accomplished :)
First up, Linear Expressions and Inequalities for Algebra 2 and Data Analysis and Probability for Trig. I welcome any ideas for both! Especially as they will be taught in block!
