First Day

Clip to ScrapBook #1

Well today was my first day with my students (Grade 2). I LOVED doing Morning Meeting with them (though I got one student's name wrong even with a name tag). They wanted to sing Peanut Butter, Grape Jelly ONE MORE TIME (I think we sang it 3 times).

The Interactive Modeling was great! They remembered how to line up after one IM.

And what can I say about Guided Discovery! We did crayons & pencils today. I've never seen kids so engaged & taking care of things. They sharpened the crayons ever so carefully & put them away carefully.

I was oh so impressed.

I'm so glad I found RC this year. I think it will make my year go ever so more smoothly. And thank you for all the advice over the summer (both mine & others) from those of you who have been doing RC for awhile now.

An aside: I'm exhausted from all the redirecting, reminding & reinforcing I did today, but it's a good exhausted!
