Back to reality. Our school has been doing training in SIOP this year. It stands for Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol. You can find out more HERE. It actually is training in teaching English Language Learner but our school does not have a very high percentage of ELLs. We actually have only 3 out of 180 in our grade level. But the SIOP model is really best practices and a great review in how to teach better. With the new common core our principal thought is would be a great help. We've had to do lesson studies and just finished one yesterday. Our team did ours on Synonyms. It's great to collaborate and work together as a team developing and analyzing a lesson.
Here's a practice page we used and a cute song we found. I don't know who to give credit for the song but our kiddos really liked it.

Hey, believe it or not but it's FRIDAY tomorrow- again! Gotta love FRIDAY!
I hope you all have a GREAT one.
