    That's going to be my mantra this week. I'm going to do peer reading, workshops, graphic organizers, etc. Little nervous.

    Yes, I'm a little nervous about how much fun you and your students will have. Also, a bit nervous about how much more they'll learn this year. Sounds like a great choice. Worksheets will still be there for the few times that they come in handy.

    I don't care for worksheets. I give them out for hw b/c the parents purchase the workbooks, but I have cut back on that.

    I hate worksheets but apparently my grade-level team love them because that is all we do. I don't know why though.... my kids hate the worksheets.

    I try to make them fun but we have required worksheets that HAVE to be done, no wiggle room, no exceptions.

    It was funny to read this this morning. Last week, I was chatting with a colleague while they made their copies for the day. I realized that I couldn't remember when I had made copies of anything other than Special Ed paperwork or an interesting article for my students to read.

    I use worksheets for homework. We have 500 copies a month and I am always well below the 500 limit. I do make copies of my newsletters, current even articles, and interesting nonfiction reading. But, you should see a trend here. I do the workshop approach in all areas of learning.

    I don't do worksheets for anything but math. Our math curriculum has worksheets and I do maybe 1-2 a week, but not every week. The other pages from the curriculum that I use are things like 100's charts, or sheets for recording games. I make up a story problem each day on a sheet of paper, but if they were older, I would just have them copy it into a notebook (which I did last year in 3rd/4th grade.)

    I am happy to say we have very, very few worksheets!
