The First 3 Days

The First 3 Days have come and gone. Here is a glimpse at our initial time together:

We began with a pep talk from our friend, Kid President. You can watch it too on our Room 200 Resources page. 

We thought about his message and put it into our own words and illustrations.

We also created our "First Day Faces". This challenge contained a little twist. The students were not allowed to use scissors. They had a blast and the faces turned out great!

Also, many of our building experts helped us remember our school expectations during our Expectation Walks. We practiced our CHAMPS and many other helpful routines.

Expectations and routines are going to help us run a very smooth classroom. We made a video to help us with our morning routine.

In math, we learned a really great new game called Knock Out. Check it out and try it at home. 

It is super important to be able to work as a team so we spent time talking and practicing teamwork with our Big Bad Wolf challenge. 

And as always, we spent a ton of time reading, talking about books and writing about books. 

Thanks for checking in! 

Stay tuned next week for our Declaration of Awesome!
