Happy October! I can't believe it's already October! New month means new Currently from Farley over at Oh Boy 4th Grade! So here ya go...
One of my favorite treats is a delicious caramel apple. I love caramel with almost anything but something about caramel and apples just make my taste buds dance! I also LOVE caramel apple lollipops and here in San Antonio I can only find them at Target and only during the Halloween season. If you haven't tried one you must!
Now that I share with you that I love caramel apples and caramel apple lollipops I will share with you that I SHOULDN'T be eating them. You see I have type 2 diabetes. In early November, I will be participating in the Diabetes Walk here in San Antonio. If you live close to SA I would love you to join me. If not, you can still show support by making a small donation under my name to the American Diabetes Association by clicking HERE. Thanks in advance for your support!
I'm curious about homework... How much do you assign each night? Do you grade it and put it in your grade book? How do you collect it and check it? I use this pocket chart to collect my homework. It is part of my morning routine for the students come in the classroom, unpack, turn in homework, etc. I numbered the pockets with numbers but you can easily label them with the students names. I can see who didn't turn in their homework with just a glance. I only use this for homework and other items that are to be turned in from home. The students turn in their daily classroom work in a basket. Comment below and share how you deal with homework.
