How's everything going?
Just thought I'd post this, as this board has been very slow lately. Just wondering how RC is going for all the newbies (even though this is my second year, I consider myself a newbie) this year?

I know that one of my major things I need to work on was Apology of Action. I feel I've done a better job of it this year. Not perfect, but definitely better. I had a student yesterday who was having a problem with another student and asked the other student to go and do an Apology of Action. I was so proud.

I also read Parents and Teachers Working Together this summer and have implemented Wonderful Wednesdays every second week. I've had a few parents drop in, but not as many as I would have thought. They mostly seem to come at the end of the day. I would have thought they'd like to see Daily 5, Math Workstations or Writer's Workshop. They all take place in the morning. Well there's still 6 months left so maybe it will be more popular in the new year.

At this time last year I began to not like the logical consequences as they did not seem to be working and started using the clip chart system again. That worked, but I vowed to work harder at making the logical consequences work for me. I'm doing a much better job of being consistent (I think that was my downfall last year). It's better and I'm not feeling like I need to use my clip chart.

Any ways, I thought I'd see how everyone else was doing. I know RSquirrel was talking in the summer about doing Apology of Action better. How's it going?

I teach a life skills program I am new to chat rooms etc. I am looking for other life skills teachers that would like to form a chat room.
Just to be connected to others as most community based programs never seem to be able to connect with anyone very well. Any thoughts? Thanks!:) Kendrick
