Well the school year has officially started with students. On August 11th, Susan Floyd and I presented to the new teachers in the district over WBT! We had such a good time, and were so excited to see the faces of the new teachers and their excitement over WBT. I then got into my room the next week to organize all of my walls! I have up my PowerPix walls, my class leaders wall, my genius ladder wall, and a spot for my homework wall (although I don't have anything on it yet).
My kiddos are already loving WBT in my classroom. I came in full force last Thursday teaching the 5 classroom rules! Today was the first day that I utilized class leaders, and it has worked wonderfully. We've already introduced several PowerPix for only being in school a week! We have author, illustrator, title, sentence, and noun up on our Communication Arts board so far, and the place value PowerPix on our Math board so far. I'll try to upload some pics to my blog. Hope everyone is off to a great school year! I'm looking forward to hearing how it's going for everyone!
