A Peek at the Week

The Best Thing I Saw This Week
Keep practicing classroom, hallway, and lunchroom procedures so that your year will be set for success!
My Reading Life
We will be talking a lot about reading this week in our data meetings (you were emailed a time to meet.) I want us to be honest about where we are as reading teachers, what our kids need to grow as readers, and what you believe our next steps should be to increase our skills as reading teachers so that our students will grow as readers. Many heads are better than few, so give this some thought.
Make sure that you are using the clip system and/or Dojo. As we implement procedures, utilize your behavior system so that students can visually see where they stand in your room. If a child has issues during the day, make sure you are communicating with that child's parents as to why they received a specific color or lost points. We want to make sure we are giving families the information they need to address issues at home.
