Odd Block Schedule: finished pH lab and scored periodic table quizzes and looked through their notebooks in preparation for Notebook turn in day..
After school I spent a lot of time getting my website organized to have Notebook Notes and Starters ready for my students to access. This is really a chance to pre-organize for next year.
I got so BUSY during the year that I did not take the few moments each time we worked on notes or starter questions to have them update their tables of contents. I did not make "Absent" copies of the notes for the kids that were gone. I did not to weekly or bimonthly notebook quizzes or turn in.
I really need to spend time each week doing long range strategic lesson planning and reminding my self to do the things (notebook organization) that make me consistent and a better teacher.
P.S. The weekend following this post my website home page lost all HTML formatting and is a solid page of text. I hope salvation is only a few clicks by a computer tech person..
I hope this helps.
Love to Teach, and Teach with Passion!
