Monday's Staff Development
We are also beginning work to get more photographs up in our school much like RCA. One thing we want to do is to have a faculty wall with head shots of everyone. On your photograph, will be your favorite quote. We will take these photographs Monday so come with your best smile!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend and are able to get some much needed rest. Thank you again for all of the work you put into our Open House event.
K-2 Teachers: Please make sure your schedule for reading reflects times for when you are teaching your mini-lesson, guided reading groups, and students are independently reading. I know some of you have to teach your mini-lesson after your groups and that is fine. It will help us if your schedule is more specific for reading rather than just saying reader's workshop.
3-5 reading teachers: Please make sure your schedule reflects the times for your mini-lesson, guided reading groups, and independent reading as well.
An Amazing Hand Shake!
Please try to greet your students each day by standing at your door as they enter and shaking their hands teaching them to look you in the eye to greet you and giving you a strong hand shake. We are going to have "The Great Amazing Shake" contest in January where we choose the student in our school with the best hand shake. We want to give them opportunities to practice this daily. They should be able to shake your hands each morning and extend their hands to others throughout the day when appropriate. More info to come on "The Great Amazing Shake" closer to January. Until then practice, practice, practice!
