Thoughts & Photos

This year's back to school has been topsy turvey to put it mildly.  We are deep into our 4th week back and I feel like things are just starting to fall into place.  I am not talking about routines & procedures.  I am talking about classroom organization, grade level, school wide stuff.  I have never felt so scattered or disorganized as I have during the last month.  But things are finally looking up!! Whoop Whoop!!!

The first 5 photos are pre-kids, pre-Open House.  Room furniture lay out complete but the classroom is no where near ready.





 
Our school wide 3 behaviors to strive towards.  We brainstormed during the first week of school on what those behaviors look like & sound like.
 
 
The students picked 3 illustrators from our class who show the most details in their drawings to illustrate 3 ways to Read.


The Snapshots of our 1st grade classroom.  The students drew their favorite part of our 1st grade classroom in the camera lense.


This was such an AH HA moment for the kids this year!!

 
Pictures taken today of my little readers building their stamina.  It is a 3 steps forward 2 steps back type of process this year but we have made it up to 5 minutes of Read to Self just today!!
