This isn't directly related to 5th grade... but it's what I'm teaching and you will know more about curriculum, etc. What is the most important thing for me to be doing this summer? I am working full time as a camp counselor so I don't have a ton of time. I've started a few goals for July and a few for August, but I'm just a little overwhelmed. Standards-- I can read through them, but can't memorize them all. I was thinking about copying them all/printing them out, and then color coding them to what month I "plan" on teaching them in. Although I know plans always change. Curriculum- I have read through math and L.A. curriculum binders. We use Guiding Readers and Writers Grades 3-6 for Reading and Writing Workshop. Also- Words Their Way for word study. Both of these books- should I read them cover to cover? Or pick and pull different sections of importance? What would be the 5 most important things for me to do over the summer? Thanks in advance for all of your help!
