It was great to see some familiar faces at Open House today! I know you all have enjoyed your summer, as did I, but it will be good to be back with students again soon! The first day of TAG will be with 3rd grade on Monday, August 15.
There are a few things I've been thinking about and working on this summer that I can't wait to share with students. One of the ideas I'm most excited about is a classroom store where students will be able to spend their hard earned Dojo Dollars which they'll earn by getting Class Dojo points and by completing classroom jobs - applications and job descriptions coming soon!
Another idea I will be incorporating into our Genius Hour work is a Resident Expert Wall. I know students have so many ideas and skills that they're proud of and I want them to share their skills with others who may need some assistance in a particular area. We are a collaborative classroom so it's important that we share our Genius (and our expertise) with the world!
We will also have a place in our classroom dedicated to wonder and random facts! I want students to be more curious about the world and become interested in exploring new topics they find exciting. Look for our "Did You Know?" door coming soon!
Students, I hope you have a fabulous last weekend of summer vacation and I can't wait to see you all bright and early Monday morning! We have some great things in store for our year ahead in TAG! :)
