We survived week one!
Boy am I tired and this was a three day work week! Getting back into the swing of things is always tiring, but I have loved getting to meet my new students this week. I spent a lot of time this week on getting my students used to routines and procedures that we would use all year. I didn't spend time with the minor details, such as when to sharpen your pencil or how to label your papers. To me these things are not very significant. I know many teachers are particular about these minute details, but I am more concerned with procedures that will have a lasting effect on their learning. Cornell notes and Costa's levels of questioning filled our class time this week because I know in the long run that these things will benefit them more!
So here's to a good weekend of relaxing, reading, spending time with my family, and oh, yeah planning for next week.
