Staff Custom # 6: Foster teacher-student-parent relationships
Take a look around your classroom. Do your walls teach? When teaching those amazing mini-lessons, create anchor charts with your students so that they can refer back them when working independently.

* Give each student a card. Ask your students the following question: If I was going to move your seat in class tomorrow and you could sit beside any three people that you wanted to sit beside, who would those three people be? Ask them to write down the three names. Take the cards up. Look at your cards and determine what kids in your class did not have their name written down at all. I will place a roster in your box. Please place a tally beside the kids names indicating the number of times their name was written down. Place this roster on my desk before the 19th. This activity will be very telling. Please do not forget to do this with your class.
