During the first week of school we use the "NO DAVID!" books by David Shannon to introduce our school, rules, and campus. We made several David printouts and taped them all around the campus. The concept was "We were worried that David would get into trouble at our school so we needed to find him and explain the best way to be a good student at our school" we also put paint hand prints that David had made with paint around the hallways to give us hints on what direction he was going. We taped "David" at different highlights of the campus: Library,Science Lab, Nurse, Office, Principal, Gym, 4th & 5th grade wing, 2nd & 3rd grade wing, etc. In conclusion: we get back to our classroom and discuss what our "FIND DAVID" adventure was like. Then we precede to talk about what rules we can make as a class to ensure that our class is fun and not so messy like David had done with his paint.
This year I have a David toy to hide in the classroom as well.
During Christmas we follow up with this book:
This activity is done throughout the first week of school. The concept came from the gingerbread man story.
I am a currently an Instructional Facilitator in Harlingen Tx, and I love my JOB! I have found some awesome resources on various blogs and thought I would broaden my horizons and create one of my own. I love researching for upcoming lesson and themes and I love creating my own word & powerpoint documents to use in my classroom. My goal is to provide as many resources that I can for teachers to help their students be successful and provide differentiated instruction. I love collaborating and sharing new ideas! Sharing is Caring:)
HI to all my parents who are visiting my blog. I enjoy working with all of my students everyday!
