Chit~Chat Chart...OH YES!
You may have heard or seen this chart as a...blurt chart. My student teacher and I decided to call it a Chit~Chat Chart. There is a whole "lotta" chatting going on during large group, small group, and table learning time. Oh ya...Academic Free Choice is getting a little loud, too!

Because...learning should be fun and it is not going to be fun if the teacher sounds…

Then I started getting requests for other grade levels, so I created a 2nd grade version and now I have a Kindergarten version.

Who in the world am I?!? I now have a math board!!!
So my goal for the year is to be a better math teacher! I hate math...I have since first grade when my teacher said she would chop my fingers off if she caught me using them! I was a pretty literal and trusting child, and so I was terrified of her for the rest of the year! Hehe...didn't stop me from using my fingers though!
