a MVP or an MVP?
Well, I just realized this morning that my behavior chart may have a grammar mistake. Help!
I had "You're an MVP" at the top of my chart (see pic below). It sounds good, but as we all know that is not grammatically correct. It should read "You're a MVP!"
Or so I thought...but then I found this here:
Abbreviation verbalisedBy this rule, if the abbreviation starts with a vowel-sounding letter, the article used is "an"; if it starts with a consonant-sounding letter, it takes an "a". This would give "an NHS hospital" and "a BBC documentary".
vowel-sounding letters (take "an"):A E F H I L M N O R S X
consonant-sounding letters (take "a"):B C D G J K P Q T U V W Y Z
So what do you think?
Should I keep it with "You're an MVP?"
I already re-uploaded my charts on TPT with "You're a MVP." Should I switch them back?
Awhile ago, I posted my first Donor's Choose project to try and get a nice set of "book boxes" as I kick off Daily 5. It is so close to being funded and nearing the "expiration date!" Check it out here (and send all potential donors that way - ha ha).
Kristi and I are exploring options for how to structure our math block. We will have math from 11:50-1:10. Here's our thoughts:
11:50-12:00 Calendar Math
12:00-12:20 Whole Group Lesson
12:20-12:35 Session I
12:35-12:50 Session II
12:50- 1:05 Session III
The three sessions will be a rotation of Facts Practice (computer), Math Games, and Math Journal (with us). That way we are able to help 6-7 kids with their math page as opposed to 20--many waiting for help.
Last year we were both frustrated with the way our math block worked...so any ideas are appreciated!
