This week we have been practicing classroom routines and procedures. It is very important to have those in place so that our classroom community can run smoothly and so students can work independently while I meet with small groups. During Math Workshop the students practiced rotating quickly, quietly, and safely through three independent work stations--Technology, Math Journals, and Math Games.
This week we had our first lesson with Mr. Blase, our school counselor. He talked to the students about his role at Westchester. He will visit our classroom throughout the school year for more lessons. He is a great resource for both parents and students so don't hesitate to reach out to him.
