A Fun Bloggy Meet Up and Can You Help Me?

Evening friends!

First, I'd like to say that I had a wonderful time with these lovely ladies yesterday:

and me - Fun In Room 4B

We had a great time at the very lovely Swan Coach House in Atlanta.

And then, of course....we headed to Ikea!  What else?  I picked up a few goodies.  It was nice heading there with a big group of teachers because they help you "see" items in a new way.  {I'll share my finds on Saturday for our final Optimum Organization link up!}

I've mentioned a few times that I've been working all summer on a project that I feel very strongly about for my classroom.  I've been working on a daily spiral review that aligns with the Common Core State Standards for fourth grade.  I couldn't find anything out there that fit my exact needs, so I am creating what I need for my classroom.  It may fit your needs, too.  That's where you come in....I need some editing eyes!

My good buddy, Kristen {Ladybugs} has helped me with the first half.  I'd like to give her a break for the 2nd half ;)

If you are interested in helping me out, you will OF COURSE receive the pack once I am finished.

Here's a little peak:

I created the checklist to make sure that I had covered every domain each week.  For me, the purpose of a spiraled math (which I feel strongly about...and will talk more about soon) is to review all domains each week.

Each week, students work on 4 questions a day....it takes about 5-10 minutes each day.
At the end of the week, there is an assessment, too.  
Plus...

Answer keys are provided for the weekly work and the assessments.

Another way to use this would be to give it as a weekly homework assignment.

By the way, obviously, I've been playing around with a new "Instagramish" app.  It's Rhonna Designs and I'm in LOVE.  It is a paid app, but so worth the $1.99.  Check it out {here} or {here}. (No, I'm not being paid to promote it...I just love it.)

So, that's where I need YOUR help...I just finished up the 3rd nine weeks (weeks 19-27) and I need some help with editing.  If you are willing, please shoot me an email or comment below.  In return, I will give this item to you when I'm completely finished!  I only need about 3 people, so email me quickly if you are interested!!

Thanks bunches!
**Update**
I've sent the file to the people who reached me first.  Stay tuned though, because I'll need the same help with weeks 28-36!!

  4. It looks you ladies had a great time at the meet-up and IKEA. I love the sound of your math review. We are starting a breakfast program and I am worried about how it will cut into our math time. I can't wait till you finish this either (you should totally do a grade 3 one too :) ). Your pics do look great. I just started on Instagram and need my daughter to help me with all the apps right now.

  8. I think you've got 3, but if you still need another pair of eyes, I'd be happy to look over it. I am frequently called a snob by my family for being a little too into grammar/ spelling mistakes, so let me know if you're still looking! :)
