Sunday Scoop

Today I am linking up with Teaching Trio for their "Sunday Scoop".

Here is the scoop on my week:
Laundry- does it ever end?  As soon as I think I have it all done another basket full magical appears.  

Greek and Latin-  I created a Greek and Latin spelling and vocabulary program to use with my 5th graders and this week I am going to give them a review quiz.  Which I haven't created yet.....  The quiz will cover the last 5 weeks of word roots and spelling/vocab words.  I have really seen awesome improvement in my kids abilities to figure out word meanings using word roots since I started focusing on Greek and Latin roots.  If you care interested, you can check out all of my Greek and Latin materials in my TpT shop.

Vacuum-  with a dog and a cat vacuuming is constant.  Add on top of that the fact that my dog loves to play with this puzzle toy filled with treats, that he crushes into little bits (all over the carpet) and I am really in need of a good vacuuming today!

I am reading the book Without You There is No Us by Suki Kim.  It is about a journalist who joins a group of missionaries to teach at a university in North Korea.  Getting an inside glimpse of North Korea and part of its education system is eerie.

Orange is the New Black- Just started season 1 this week and I am almost done. I love finding new shows I have not seen and binge watching them on DVD.

Who doesn't love a 3 day weekend!?!?  We have school off tomorrow so I am happy to have an extra day to relax!

Have a great week!

  1. DJ,
    I do root based vocabulary with my ninth grade students as well. It is definitely the way to go.
