In my National Board Certification process, I discovered the importance of getting to know my students. The first few weeks of school we spend valuable time connecting. I listen, take notes and genuinely work on getting to know my students. Some of these activities are ‘oldies’ that I re-formatted and some are some new ideas. I kept from including directions on the student sheets so that you could fit it to your needs.
Sometimes I actively monitor and sometimes I participate like another student. The goal is to build trust and connections so your classroom has an awesome learning environment.
