I started something new this year. I will be using a very specific agenda during each class period.
I'm doing this for a lot of reasons:
1. I heard the Wongs speak again. They talked about having a Do Now and an Agenda.
2. I wanted to implement Team Challenges and a Bell Ringer for each class period.
3. I wanted to keep my kids on task. I also wanted them to come into the room quietly. So, having a Bell Ringer would help with that.
Here is a photo of my agenda board. I have images to help my ELL students and students who need visual schedules.
I read Team Challenges by Kris Bordessa. I wanted to get those into the agenda. It is a great book. I highly recommend it.
Do you have an agenda? Share!
