This first week of school sure has kept me busy... I'm super sleepy!
Thank goodness for weekends... I am taking time to recuperate and prep for my second week. But before I do, I'd like to show you what we did in grade one during these first days of school!
We started the week by learning our classroom rules, procedures, and all that good stuff!
We started using our behavior system, including our clip chart and our calendars. The kiddies were very excited to learn that they have the possibility to move their clip UP! Some of them are working extra hard to see it go up and I'm really excited about that :)
We practiced walking in the hall and had our first mystery walker.
He was an excellent walker so he got a treat!
YAY for our first mystery walker! The smile on his face was priceless :)
We started working in our literacy centers this week! It will definitely be a work in progress to get these little darlings to learn how to WHISPER but we're working on it! Hehehe!!
Our center groups have been working really hard to earn their stars and I was impressed with how well they were following the rules by the end of the week!
We also did our very first Read/Write The Room activity this week.
My student teacher was SUPER impressed with this activity and we both really enjoyed watching our kiddies search the room for cards! It was so much fun :)
Now for my favorite part of the week...
We worked on our first craftivity! You all know how much I love craftivities, right??
We read the book "I Like Myself" and shared what we like about ourselves.
Some of my sweet peas had a hard time understanding the difference between things we like ABOUT ourselves and things we like. Once we got that ironed out, we started writing our qualities on our star crafts.
The best part about this craftivity was that my students got to work with a partner and give each other compliments! It was adorable to watch them tell their new friends that they are "pretty" and "smart"!
On the plan for next week??
MORE center work, school bus safety, and fun with numbers!
