The beginning of school in brief:
- I'm loving reading workshop so far. My kids have awesome independent reading stamina, we just need to work on our sit at the carpet for a mini-lesson stamina! Most of my kids have finished at least one book so far and I am finishing up my reading interest interviews. I'm learning so much about their feelings about reading as well as their likes and dislikes.
- We are in the midst of our JA BizTown lessons. Our BizTown simulation is set for mid-September so we need to cram in all the lessons ASAP. This being the second time doing BizTown I am able to better adjust the lessons to help my students get the most out of them in preparation.
- Class Dojo is a hit with my new class. It has really helped me highlight the positive behaviors and acknowledge the kids when they are being rock stars! I especially love "catching" positive behaviors in the students that struggle to make good choices and hearing the affirming ding from Class Dojo.
- I did a major overhaul to my classroom economy system. So far it is much smoother/easier, and the kids are enjoying it.
My goal for next week is to take some photos for a proper blog post. Today I am excited to join in with Bunting, Books, and Bainbridge's Fabulous Feedback Linky!
