The boys and I spent a few hours at Blue Springs today. While the boys played, Josie (our new puppy)and I read Chapter 3! I did take a few breaks to join in the fun and cool off in the spring fed creek...June has been H.O.T.!
Chapter 3 is done...Debbie Diller provided me with a PLETHORA (I LOVE that word) of information on how to successfully get my Math Stations going. It has given me A LOT to think about. Like I said in my Chapters 1 & 2 post, I've unsuccessfully attempted math stations in my classroom in previous years. I came to the conclusion that organization could have been a major factor there (1 & 2 helped me get that far). I plan on purging and organizing my storage closet during the 10 days I'll be teaching Summer School (man I'm going to miss creek days w/my boys...10 days, 30 hours and a SWEET paycheck...I CAN DO IT)!
I'm really not ready to FULLY take on the "Getting Started" information...baby steps! I've gotta get organized in a MAJOR way!!!! I may need to reread Chapter 3 (not while I'm at the creek, keeping one eye on the boys and one on my book AND after the organization process). I bet there is a lot of information that I missed. I'm going to be behind on my responses, but I'll there! Until then, I'll continue to read and gain ideas from the other bloggers out there! :)
