Thoughts this Week

Intentionality

The definition of the word intentional means to do something on purpose or deliberately. Some its synonyms are: purposeful, conscious, knowing, intended and planned. Let's be intentional with our classroom management, instructional routines, and in how we prepare to teach our lessons. Let's deliberately choose to find something positive about our a student who may be challenging or a colleague may also be challenging.


Dealing with Tragedy

Please be wise and age appropriate should tragedy come up in class. Terrible incidents are not a time to feed fear or talk religion or politics with elementary aged students in a public school. Thanks for understanding.


Fluency

Teach students to read the way they speak, so as to facilitate comprehension.


Teach To's

Please remember to catch student fulfilling our expectations. This Months "Teach To" is cafeteria behavior and you can still reward students for other positive behaviors. I need everyone to buy in.
