I'm already thinking about my next class. Just out 4 days, but before you know it Aug. 12 will be here.
I'm thinking about the first few weeks.
1. Will teach strategies, etc from the class reading Charlotte's Web together. It's a great character study, story elements, and writing mentor text. I will need to order a few more from Scholastic. I think I'll use bonus points.
3. Practicing procedures and learning the rules will take more time this year. I usually practice a few days and then think they have it...only to regret my decision later.
4. Will have morning work for students to do that come early...just not sure what(maybe a spelling city activity in the computer lab since my room is next door). In the past I've just had them read...but some are good about this activity, but not all.
