Weekly Check-In (Oct 16-27)

First off, I want to say thank you to all of you who are reading and using the resources I'm sharing. If you have any particular resources you are looking for, units you're teaching, or subjects that your learners are passionate about, let me know and I'll see what I can find!

I know I missed last week's check-in. We had a Provincial Professional Development Day. I went on an amazing 5 mile hike with a Okanagan Indian Band knowledge keeper who shared his experiences growing up and took us all around some traditional and contemporary lands. He showed us ancient petroglyphs, and we saw all kinds of wildlife including mountain goats. It was a fantastic experience for me, that left me encouraged to do more to incorporate indigenous content into my teaching.

  • Story Starters: Some of you may be familiar with the upper intermediate (grade 6-9) story starters I'm using in our Google Classrooms. I have a great story starter link for K-5. Scholastic has this website which gives random story parts within a genre. 

  • Wonderopolis is a website which gives you a new "I wonder" (submitted by students!) every day. It's like a mini-mythbuster to start your morning. 

  • Being that it's nearly Halloween- here are some Pumpkin Math resources 2-5. (They're FREE!)
  • Here is some Pumpkin Literacy resources for K-3. Let me also give a huge shoutout to (Canadian) This Reading Mama- her resources are always top notch and
