Spirt Week

Next Thursday we will have Field Day. This year it will be to celebrate our House of Values. i would highly encourage reviewing all values next week. On Field Day we encourage your grade level to "own" a value and decorate your shirts in that way. So, if your value is Kindness you can be creative with your shirts in some way about kindness. The Field Day schedule will be sent out soon. Remember that on field day 1/2 of the day is spent in activities and 1/2 of the day is fun within your classroom. This could be something special you plan or downtime with a movie. The spirit days are listed below:


Monday: Mismatch Monday

Tuesday: SUPER Hero Day

Wednesday: Nerd Out Day

Thursday: Field Day - wear decorated shirts and appropriate gym shorts

Strengthening Whole Class Discussions

Sometimes we try to have great classroom discussions without planning and accountability. Check-out this article to learn more about strengthening your classroom discussions! I especially agree with wait time and promoting thinking and organizing thoughts before speaking. Some students need more process time. This is especially true for ESL students. Once everyone starts talking we limit them. Also, I LOVE the cup idea and would love to see someone try this out with our students!!

Great job Team Burt, Team FIsher, Team Sitzman, Team Cole, Team Kohler, Team Jacobs, and Team Perdue!! Great job Team Showalter for taking the lead in the middle school!
