We have TEN school days until state testing, T-E-N!
We have officially covered all material for sixth grade Math.
We have spent a lot of time spiraling throughout the year with warm ups and various activities.
Now, I have TEN days to review everything!!!!
Last year at this time I was scouring blogs for ideas. I became overwhelmed. I had so many great ideas, but time to get it all together and stuff made, etc... well, that wasn't happening. I know it all worked out, but I remember stressing way too much.
My life outside of school is stressful enough, I cannot add school stress right now. They don't make enough wine for that!
So, as my team and I were planning, I have done two things.
1) I stopped being so bossy and let my partners do some things. I am not a good delegator, I end up just saying, "Ill do it, "I'll make those copies, "I'll make that game", I'll do that power point this weekend", etc.
This week, I did a little better. I am still doing a lot, but not everything.
2) I am making use of the AWESOME resources I have purchased this past year on TpT! Sometimes I find great stuff on blogs and TpT and forget about them. Not this time.
I am making another Jeopardy game from the template I purchased from Kendra Passarelli earlier. It is so easy to edit!!!
I am using the STAAR review Task Cards I have gotten from Live. Love. Math. Remember, I bought her whole store!!!! My laminator and her products have been my life line this year!!!!
I love task cards. We are incorporating them in different ways though.
You should just check her store out, she has a ton of GREAT resources!!!
We are including them in different games and activities. We are using them as warm ups, I am including them in my Jeopardy, and I am using a set for a whole class activity called "Inside/Outside". (I'll write about that after we do it and I have some pictures.)
It has been really easy planning, mostly stress free and that is my goal for the rest of the year.
What do you do to review a whole year of standards? I'd love to know.
