TOGETHER we learn

I am SUPER excited to be linking up with Ashley from Schroeder Shenanigans in 2nd and Angie from Lucky Little Learners. These two are a dynamic duo. I had the pleasure of meeting them in Vegas last year. What a treat!

If this is your first time to my blog, Welcome! I am Courtney from Ramona Recommends. I teach 5th grade in Southern California and L.O.V.E books. Come see what we do in room 20. 

Here is my weekly schedule that must be posted in our rooms at all times. It is very helpful when I have the kids helping to create the daily schedule. They just look at this calendar. When I need to change the schedule, I write on the post-it note the kids plan according. It is quite wonderful. My kids know the routine. I am the type of teacher who loves routine. I feel that my kids have grown to love routine as well. Schedules make my heart full. What about you?
My theme this year is "Let Your Heart Be Your Compass!" by Lady Antebellum
LOVE my Erin Condern Planner. The colors make me love planning. :) 
My schedule on the left is a WEDNESDAY. On Wednesdays, the kids get out early. After the kids leave we have PLC Meetings, Staff Meetings, or Staff Development.

Where do I get my curriculum?
We have textbook adoptions for all CORE areas: Language Arts, Math, Social Studies, and Science. BUT! Like any great teacher, I supplement A LOT. My top two resources that make me LOVE teaching.....Drum Roll.......

Children's Literature Books. Want to see my library?

Teachers Pay Teachers
 My favorite 5th Grade GO TO SELLERS and my favorite product from their store:
