Learning Logs and Christmas Math

Today, I added in a little reading skills from our reading series this week into our book we read yesterday.


We practiced cause and effect, so I gave them the cause for one, and they gave me the effect, then on the bottom, I gave them the effect and they gave me the cause.


I'm really diggin' this whole "learning log" thing...I don't actually use any rubrics for it, I just kind of "grade it" and what not...but we do EVERYTHING in there now - our planning for our writing, sloppy copies, math journals, EVERYTHING....

and we took that venn-diagram and turned it into writing, and they made Caitlin's cute pilgrim!


hehe - I really like the bottom left one...he's awesome!! It kind of reminds me of Gargamel from the Smurfs.

And yesterday I had said that the first person who could find what was driving me crazy about this venn diagram would get my pack...


y'all listed some good ones!
yes, the none-circle-ness bugs me...

yes, the writing out of the lines bugs me...

yes, the word is supposed to be trenchers (it's in the story)

yes, scribbling off words bugs me...

lol...

BUT, the thing that is REALLY bugging me was that the "both" sign has the kids already positioned, and I didn't pay attention to that when I made the venn diagram and so the actual children are opposite..lol.

So...Congrats Natalie! I am uploading the file right now to send you...

OH!!

Forgot to tell you....

I already finished and uploaded my Christmas math pack!!





There are SIX math centers - in both a color version AND black and white version. Each center also has a student activity for independent work.


TpT or TN

I am getting ready to make my Christmas Literacy pack - 

I foresee it including...

contractions...
verb tense (like past and present)...
create a story with "who" "did what" "where" or "when" type sorting...

and now I'm stumped....

SOOOO....


I leave you with these two questions...

Do you do Learning Logs??? And if so, do you "grade them" with rubrics?? or do you just "have them?" I'm interested...

AND what would YOU like to see in my Christmas Literacy pack???

Hey there! No learning logs, but starting with them a bit. They seem like an informal assessment...but I'll know more later with them?! Pilgrims are sooo cute! New packet, go with writing! It's everywhere in common core!

I love your learning logs and would love to have more information about how you use them. I think I might implement them next year. This year is getting away from me! As for grading them, we have district rubrics for our report card standards. I'd probably use those for grading.

And for literacy packets, I find it's a good way to review grammar. Maybe plural nouns, proper nouns, etc.

I used to use learning logs and then got out of the habit. Not sure why, cause they're a great way to go!

Articles that have meaningful and insightful comments are more enjoyable, at least to me. It’s interesting to read what other people thought and how it relates to them or their clients, as their perspective could possibly help you in the future.
