Okay, I know the response hasn't been overwhelming to our book study but let's keep discussing. What really strikes you about Week 3 of the First Six Weeks of School? What will be the hardest part of this week for you? How does this fit into what you've already done? Is there something you want to focus further on now that you've reread? Comment, comment, comment away!

The biggest challenge for me is that at my school we're given the 1st week to get routines etc down, then we're expected to be in full academic mode by the start of week 2.....which I hate. I really feel I need at least 2 full weeks devoted to routines, expectations etc to get my kids ready for academics. I teach in an urban, high poverty school...so many of my kids lack consistency and rules at home and have been off all summer running the streets with no rules/bedtimes/eating junk food.

I have never read the book before, this is my first time. I am just starting this chapter, so I'll write more when I finish. So far, I love the idea of acting out problems that have actually occurred with specific students. I have tried to have them act out situations in the first two weeks, and it has been a flop (in 1st grade) because my kids are so shy and don't know what to do. But, if they have seen it before or actually experienced it, it might be easier!
