First I'd like to say that I am pooped, exhausted, oh so tired. We are into the 4th day of school and my body is not adjusting well to the changes. I have pictures of my classroom on my camera and will hopefully get them up and running soon.
Yesterday, we read:
I started by activating what they already knew about a principal (what they do, their responsibility in the schools, etc). They obviously did not really know a whole lot as they were only able to tell me 2-3 things they knew a principal did. (Yikes)
After reading we took a reading comprehension quiz using our
Because my students did not have a lot of prior knowledge regarding the principal's job, I decided to invite our principal to our class so that the students could interview him.
Before he came we devised and created questions that would help us get to know his position a little bit better. Then we all go in our interview circle and I had the students practice reading their questions into the microphone and making eye contact while interviewing.
The kids were super excited to interview our principal and did a great job with their questions. I know they gained a lot of knowledge about him that was not there before.
Our last follow up activity will be a compare and contrast of the principal in the book versus our very own principal. They already decided today there would be a lot of differences:)
As my eyelids are droopy I look forward to doing this
Anyone else crazy tired like me?
