A Review of Week 1

Posted on Updated on

What a great first week of instruction. Week one of school was really about establishing routines and procedures and getting to know each other. We built graphs around student interests and commonalities, students were met with their Confidence Buddies (a strategy to promote Social Emotional Learning), and all students signed our classroom pledge: Be Nice, Work Hard. That said, we got into some content with our first work with place value, math “sprints,” word study, and text-dependent questions. Students learned about text features and the difference between primary and secondary sources.

Students got their job assignments and learned how to earn bonus cash by volunteering to help and completing “Affirmation Rings.” What a terrific group of students.
