Primary Points to Ponder

Week of September 24 "The Greatest School on Earth!"

What is it?



First thing in the morning - students unpack their binders while I walk around to check and stuff binders if needed. When I tap the student on the shoulder they can put their binder up and get their materials out for handwriting. Students will begin writing previous letters taught until I check all folders and everyone is on the carpet.

How long?

7:40-8:10 (or 8:15) this fluctuates just a little bit depending on how well students are "getting it"

Teacher does

I teach or review the letter of the week every morning before allowing students to practice that letter. I use the same language throughout the week and have students say it with me while I'm modeling. When students are writing the letter I watch every student write at least one letter. I work in small group on the carpet or one on one with students who need assistance.

Students do

write :) using the skills shown by me on the board.

Helpful Tips

doing handwriting on the carpet. I can see every student's board - this keeps students on task and me able to intervene quickly as needed.
