(ahem- play dough). I plan to make them more accountable for practicing their spelling words.
2. Write More
I am going to have them write more across all areas of curriculum, making sure they have proper
3. More Consequences
This sounds bad but I don't mean it to be. I need to hold the kids more accountable for their actions
and this means creating consequences and following through.
4. Change Their Line Order
I have been having them line up in all sorts of orders to mix them up- by birthdays, last names,
first names, etc. but I think I'm going to have to have them boy/girl from now on.
5. Create Brain Builders
I found this idea on Pinterest and I think I'm going to try it in my room. I was trying to figure out a
way to teach all the skills from the NWEA MAP tests and I think this might be the ticket. I am going
to make different cards on rings for some of the strands and let the kids learn them in their free time.
I have a list of things to start with and I'm already working on some synonym/antonym cards. I plan
to start this after spring break, though, so we have a good amount of time.
