Day Four: Successful Start of School

Typically I try to stay about one week ahead in terms of planning and prep. And even when I am prepared, I'll change the plans if I believe students need something different.

The first three days of school we'll focus on teamwork, reflection, and presentation. On the fourth day we'll focus more on getting to know one another with the following activities:
  1. Morning work: student/teacher word finds and funny name video.
  2. What is the United States Constitution and review of the school handbook.
  3. Recess
  4. Know Your Brain Activities: Mystery Science
  5. Lunch
  6. Library
  7. Inside/Outside Personal Collages
  8. Clean-Up
  9. End-Day Recess
