During the first week of school, I worked on ice breakers, assessments, & different surveys. One of the surveys I use, that I use every year, is a Multiple Intelligence survey that shows “how” students are smart. The survey gives eight options for “how” students are smart:
The students really enjoyed this survey.
I was also able to get a writing sample with the “I AM” poem. I also introduced them to my new policies, which I’ll write about later. I got so much done the first week. It was so much that it doesn’t feel like the first week of school.
For the second week of school, I worked on:
- Executive Functioning Skills
- S.M.A.R.T. Goals
- Cognitive Dissonance
Next week I’ll be working on:
- Cognitive Dissonance & how to overcome it
- the student’s disability. They will complete research on one of three disabilities that predominate in the class- A.D.D/A.D.H.D., S.L.D., & Autism.
I’m actually really excited about helping the students learn about their disabilities. I’ll keep you in the know. Bye for now!
