It has been the first week back to school and back to routine. After the first few hours on Monday, I felt like I had not been away from my classroom for two weeks. The routines were going smoothly in the classroom – and the children were surprisingly calm. The report card deadline looms and I wonder whether I should have kept my work folders closed during the Winter break. Despite the necessity to work this weekend, however, the first week of January has been a successful one in that my students have picked up where they left off in December, and I am keeping up to date with correcting their work and planning lessons. Now we look forward to cold winter days, and beginning a new inquiry in class.
How has your first week of January been?
