Fundamental 5

We have talked briefly in PLC Meetings about the Fundamental 5. I understand that some of you read the book last year, and I have seen many of these important strategies in your classrooms during walkthroughs. It is always great to keep engaging learning strategies at our fingertips! We will be reviewing the importance of the Fundamental 5 throughout the year. Take a look at this short video on Framing the Lesson.
