Week four of the school year begins today and the focus is keeping the pace and pattern established. What does that mean?
It means that lots of time and effort have been put into place to establish a pace and pattern for the fifth grade program. In the first ten days of school over four weeks, children learned protocols, how to transition, and expectations for each learning module. Now on our first Monday of the year, it's time to focus on deepening that learning so the pattern and pace becomes routine, and we can begin to deepen the learning and efforts in the days ahead.
