I like things simple. But with the requirement of posting standards or I can statements for each lesson I found a different way to present them to the kids. With Tennessee's new evaluation, we are required to state the objectives/standards/I can statements several times during each lesson. So I finally figured out that since I am already posting them on my website as our "weekly update" that it would make more sense just to post them in the same format. That way I can just use the SMARTboard to project them.
This is what the kids had last week.
