We have joined the linky party at The Teacher's Chair. The topic is Favorite Read Alouds.
I love reading books to the kids. They all seem to love it as well. I have a lot of books that I read every year to the kids, but the one that comes to mind that I read every year on the first day is:
David Goes to School By David Shannon
I use this book to introduce our classroom rules. The kids think this book is funny and we laugh a lot and talk about why you shouldn't do the things that David does in school. We also discuss the better choices that David should make in school.
After we get done with the book, the students will make a class book of positive choices. They love the fact that they are making their own class book.
I found this neat idea at Ready-Set-Read.
Make sure you stop by and share your favorite read alouds.
With school approaching, I have been thinking a lot about my daily schedule. I am still pondering my calendar time. I have always done a traditional calendar. But, I am thinking about doing it on the mimio board this year. Has anyone done their calendar time on the mimio board? If so, how do you manage it? If not, how do you do your calendar time? Thanks!
