The first two days of school focused on establishing our classroom rules and procedures. We described “expected” and “unexpected” behavior for group work and applied this to a several icebreakers, content from Youcubed.org, and the introduction of Confidence Buddies. Student completed job applications and signed their rental agreements.
We did our first Number Talks, Juicy Sentences and learned the basic of annotating complex text. In short, it has been a great two days!
