HAPPY MONDAY EVERYONE!!
I love how this book illustrates how important the first couple hours/days/weeks are to a successful school year.
This past year, before I began the year, I created a Powerpoint with all my rules, expectations, procedures, etc. Then, I spent the first couple days of school going over the Powerpoint so my students knew exactly which behaviors I expected from them.
It was also very helpful to go over this Powerpoint after my students came back from Christmas break, and I also plan on going over it again after spring break.
If you'd like to view my Powerpoint,
I know there's no way anyone could use my exact Powerpoint since we all have different rules, expectations, rewards, consequences, etc. But feel free to use whatever you can.
