This is where we first gather for the day. We check in with each other. We talk about our life outside of school. This is also our time to do our classroom business such as weekly job assignments. (Melanie, Asher’s teacher last year, asked Asher how he liked his new class. With his hands on his hips he said; “Well, you know, I have a job. I feed the bunnies.”) We also have our number of the day – tomorrow is day 5! We fill out the calendar with the day of the week, what was yesterday, what is tomorrow, what is the weather (this can involve prediction which is fun.) It’s our get -ready-set-go-time, as they are all anxious to see what is new in the room since next on the schedule is classroom/studio work-time, which I will cover next week in “what our daily schedule REALLY means: PART 2.
And thank you everyone for letting me know how much you appreciate the website – it is something much larger than it started it out to be – it now seems to have a life of its own.
See you tomorrow.
P.S. Happy Birthday Brigit!
