Welcome Back Block B!
This week, we are going to spend time reviewing River Role Model expectations in the Learning Commons. This will include transitioning to the tables to work on activities during check-out. Finally, we will practice lining up as we transition from one class to the next. Only when your class is able to meet the Learning Commons expectations will the Maker Space centers be rolled out to your class.
Turkey Day comes really early this year. We're going to talk a little bit about it this week and even more the week AFTER Thanksgiving.
