Wonder Wednesday - A Strange Way to Start Year 30...
*On Monday, August 24, 2020, I headed back to my elementary building of twenty-eight years. Get this, in the same room and all. My first two years were in a different district.
*As we all know, the state of teachers and students has been, and continues to be, in flux.
*As of this posting, I don't know much, but I do know I'm going to give the 2020/21 school year the BEST I've got and try to make it as normal as possible.
*We are going to kick-off our year with students on Wednesday, September 2nd. The district extended summer a couple of extra days in order for teachers to prepare. We are going to participate in a hybrid model.
*I have twenty-three students on my class list. I will have eleven students on Monday/Tuesday and twelve students on Wednesday/Thursday. The half that is at home, will live stream in for our core lessons.
*On Fridays, we will have the opportunity to do some virtual teaching with all of our students. We will also have PLC time.
*I don't know what the year will bring, but I do know I want to focus on the love of reading, books, and stretching ourselves as readers and writers.
*Here is a look at my "2020" classroom. Sure looks different than a year ago.
*Some aspects of the room will NEVER change = There will always be BOOKS!!!
