- I launch the school rules discussion by reading the David books, by David Shannon. You know these...kids LOVE No, David!, David Goes to School and others.
- Next up is a series of discussions to set up our classroom guidelines. This year, thanks to some awesome bloggers, I found a series of books that I'm using. I'll be sharing my thoughts on how things went with these books in the coming weeks.
- First up...My Mouth Is a Volcano by Julia Cook. This one is about a kiddo who's mouth keeps "erupting." The focus of the story is how it feels to be interrupted, and how to keep yourself from interrupting during conversations. Perfect for 1st grade!
- I found related activities at Teachers Pay Teachers. "teach4real" offers a set of writing activities that were a great follow-up to the book.
I'm off to school! Have a great day!
