Today was the seventh day of school and I realized today that we are really getting into a system! Rituals and routines are becoming the glue to our day and our schedule is taking its shape with perfection. We are well on our way to learning so many great things in our skills block, reading, writing, math, and science. Today, for example, we talked more about what an independent reader and writer looked like. The number one element that resonated was "DON'T STOP!" That's right, whether reading or writing, it is each child's job to consistently read or write for the appropriate workshop. This year I will continually be challenging them to build up their stamina to read and write for longer periods of time. I believe they will be showing growth in no time!
We have been having fun getting to know each other, too! I am enjoying seeing our class build itself into a family! Today, Coach Hall gave us an amazing compliment for being such team players and encouragers during Character Ed resource. I'm so proud of them for working so well together after only 7 days!
