Diary of a Not So Wimpy Teacher: Goodbye Fall Break. Hello 2nd Quarter.

Goodbye Fall Break. Hello 2nd Quarter.

Today was my students' first day back after a two and a half week fall break! After such a long break, I knew that my kiddos would need to review rules and procedures before starting into our normal routine. I did not want to just stand in front of my class and rehash the first two weeks of school. I wanted something more engaging. So, I came up with six topics that I wanted my students to review. I wrote them on the board and assigned a team to each topic.

I gave each of the teams ten minutes to work together. They brainstormed the things students needed to know and a way to teach it to them.

Finally, each group taught the class their topic. They were so cute and they sounded JUST like me! And the best part? I just sat and watched. They did all the work! And they liked doing it!

I wanted to hear all about the kids' fall break adventures (and I was excited to tell them about my cruise and swimming with dolphins!), so I made this simple and cute creativity for them. They loved making and sharing these books.

Don't make fun of my terrible drawing!

Now I need to get some R&R! Going back after a super fun break is very exhausting!
