Monday Minutes

November 26, 2018

Happy Monday!


I hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving break! Hopefully you rested some, ate some good food, and enjoyed time with people that you love. I don't know about you, but I always think I want an extra day off. Some of our students probably feel that way too, while others are very eager to get back into the routine. Take some time today to connect with your students - find out about their break and share about yours as well. That personal connection you make with them can determine whether or not they have a great day at school.


Have a wonderful week!

Instructional Minute

4th grade's awesome metacognition poster got me thinking about how we teach students metacognitive skills in the classroom. Check out the sixty second video I attached at the bottom of this smore. I created a poster to go along with the questions, which is also attached.
