Please remember that for 15 minutes during breakfast ALL students in ALL contents should be writing. We are providing you with prompts, but you are free to use your own. The purpose is to get students comfortable getting their ideas on paper and in a routine of sharing their written work. Please make time for some share-outs!

We would love feedback on how this is going and how we can make it better!

Shout out to Ms. Perez for organizing an amazing field trip to UTA

Shout out out to Ms. Carter for organizing and gathering everything for TELPAS

-David Bottema

Today, Mr. Moore, Manzanera and coach Willis paid a visit to one of my students. I know I've given them a shout-out already, but I am speechless (and that's hard to accomplish). After they left, my class was asking why they were here, so I took the time to explain to them that we, as teachers work together and talk all the time about who is being a great citizen and who needs some improvement. This is another way to hold students accountable for their actions. I happened to be showing my class the pictures that will go on my wall and then it hit me. I need a picture of the specials team and me, a picture of you, Geri, and me... you guys are my support and because my class is so into pictures, I think we should do it. Then I thought, it would be so cool to start off Tuesday's bulldog huddle with teachers taking selfies with team member who are not particularly on the same grade level but still work together. I volunteer to develop pictures as long as they are posted in classrooms for students to see. It already made a huge impact on my class, we could even tie a circle about family, friendship or teamwork around the pictures for teachers to do if they want to. Just an idea. =)
