Chets Creek Elementary is a K-5 professional learning community with 1,300 learners in Jacksonville, FL. Coaching Chronicles was first created when I served as the school's Instructional Coach (2004-2011). I have since served as a third grade learning leader(2011-2013), and am now the school's Assistant Principal. Regardless of my role, this blog shares snippets of our learning journey and Creek Life.

In third grade, students will learn how to multiply and divide. We have two doors in our classroom designated to record student progress. As they master a set, they will get to "sign the door." Could also use when they master Rainbow Words lists.

Fall In Love With Learning! - Fall Bulletin Board Idea

September-bulletin board-"Fall In Love With ______" is a popular title for an autumn bulletin board display. This teacher has added student photos inside the leaves (along the top and right) and her tree and pumpkin patch are very eye-catching.

This would be awesome to put in the classroom and have the students list their goals for the future :)
