Back to School

We started back to school this past Wednesday. I have most of the same students from last year, so we pretty much picked up where we left off.

We started off by reviewing the classroom/school rules by reading David Goes to School. It was a great way to talk about appropriate and inappropriate school behavior. We made two anchor charts for what good students do and what they do not do. We discussed all of the literary elements of the story and all sorted 'dos' and 'don'ts' in terms of behavior.

After discussing behavior the students wrote about the school rules they will follow this school year. They even made this adorable little David craftivity. I love how each of them are so different, even when given the same pieces.

We're off to a great start for the new school year. It's going to be an interesting year with the kiddos I have. The dynamics are very different that last year. We're going to have a lot of fun this year!

  1. Those turned out really cute, Kelly. I always love when the kids draw David and use a black crayon outline. Glad you had a great first week!
