I’m a big fan of one-on-one conferencing with students as a way to connect with them and check for understanding. I use this “deli-style” format with students as a fun way to let them know it is their turn to conference with me.

Kids love it!

They are SO close to promoting to middle school and I loved reading their responses today. Most agree that it will be "challenging" and "exciting." We have 34 days of school left! #iteach456 #iteach5th #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #iteachtoo #miss5thswhiteboard
