The first dayof school especially for Kindergarten must be full of procedures, procedures, procedures! I have learned the most important thing the first two weeks is getting students to following directions and classroom procedures. During the first three days my focus is behaviors and following directions. I use lots of positive reinforcement to model good behaviors; many times this is using stickers!!
DOL stands for Demonstration of Learning. This is a check for understanding that for each lesson aligned to the standard and objective. I collect this student data to plan the next lessons or find out what I need to reteach!
Please let me know if you have any questions!!
