Of course, the first moments did not go as I had planned! Actually, it was better than I could have ever imagined. They class kept me on my toes and reminded me that they have ideas of exactly how the school year should go too! After the first few days I came to some conclusions. This group is dynamic, creative, opinionated, thoughtful, generous and funny! I am so excited to share our discoveries and learning as time moves forward (planned or unplanned)!
I will blog at least once a week and I hope to always include an update of topics (academics, social/emotional) that we covered as well as photos. Some photos will be attached to the blog but most will be under the "Photo Gallery" section of my website. Look for detailed descriptions of the photos. The photos will be password protected and that info will be sent in an email soon!
This week we spent time discovering ourselves and each other. We played games (Find someone who..., Two truths and a lie), completed activities (Time capsule, Who am I? circles) and did a lot of sharing (class meetings). We also established the way our class will work (class agreements, class job descriptions, open mic, routines and the schedule). We accomplished a lot together!
