Jasper Roberts - Blog


I have been going to bed so early lately, and I just haven't had the mental energy to blog even though I have so many things to share with you! Instead of sharing them now, I will make a list of things I'm going to tell you about, so that I'm inspired to write about them soon:

The Success of Close Reading
Planning out the Quarter in the ISN
Using NoRedInk for Practice
The First Shared Inquiry of the Year
Teaching the Art of Argument with Model Texts
Using Writing to Teach Grammar
Prepping for Parent Teacher Conferences

Which one do you want to hear about most?

Are the rest of you wiped out as the whirlwind of the beginning of the school year is finally settling? We are almost done with the quarter, parent teacher conferences are next week, and drama starts up soon, so I need to buck up and get some energy back. How do you keep your energy up?


  1. Close reading!!! I'd loveee some stuff on that! Energy? I don't have any. I go to bed super late (adjusting to this new job) and wake up at 5:30 am. I need help with energy too!

  2. I would love to know how you teach grammar through writing. Teaching grammar is the hardest thing to fit into my day!

  3. They all sound good! I'm new to the ISN and never seem to make my plans match the reality, so planning ahead would be great. Or teaching grammar or close reading.

  4. Girl, I've been going to bed before 9pm for a few weeks now. Just can't seem to get enough sleep! I'd love to see the grammar used in writing :)

    Tales of Teaching in Heels

  5. I'm going to be starting Close reading this week. I hope I do it justice. After looking at Heather's blog and your class notes, I am a little less stressed.

    Energy? I drink SPARK by Advocare. It seriously has changed the way I feel on a daily basis. (It's healthier2spark.com)
