I'm joining up with Clutter-Free Classroom's Linky Party! Here is what we did this week: Routines! Routines! Routines! It's only our second week of school so we are working on making sure our classroom operates smoothly. I have a lot of students who receive extra services so there is a lot of coming and going (of teachers and students)! It makes the day more complicated so establishing those routines and behaviors is crucial at this time of the year.
We worked on:
- how to sit correctly on the rug
- how to walk quietly in the wall
- how to stay in our seats (that's a big one this year!)
- how to use the computer (ooo that was a difficult one!)
- and more!
We also started to launch Reader's and Writer's Workshop. So much fun! We made heart maps in Writer's Workshop. These are tools to help students when they are having a writers block. In Reader's Workshop, the students were introduced to our classroom library and their brand new bookbags! It was a busy but fun week.
