Tomorrow is day 10 of the school year. We've done a lot already, and now it's time to play catch-up to make sure that everyone has completed early year projects and learning efforts, endeavor mostly aimed at getting to know one another, building good relationships, and introducing initial learning/teaching patterns.
During the next few days, I want to focus on individuals--who is completing tasks and who is not? What do students need to achieve good learning and success? It's also a time to focus on routine--what's working well and what needs a bit of change to work better.
Essentially we're building a team, and preparing to learn as positively as possible in the days ahead.
