We stick with a routine everyday. My students come in and complete math minutes. Then it's time for language arts center rotations, math center rotations, science, social studies, specials, and then home. We dance to get our wiggles out! My deskless classroom allows for defined areas for centers. It also allows us room to work on projects. Every child has their own personal space.
I have 16 students.
Nine of them are ESOL students. Two students receive special education services. My school has a 65.1% FARMS rate. 42% of the students are ESOL students. 15% of the students are Special Ed students. Our mobility rate (entrants and withdrawals) is 16.7%.
Ahoy Mateys! Every year on September 19th, I celebrate International Talk Like a Pirate Day with my first graders. I've been able to integrate some fun activities into the day, but I'm ready to step up my game.
As part of the Get Your Teach On Rock Your School challenge, (which is September 20th,) I am going outside of my comfort zone and not only planning a pirate themed room transformation to coincide with International Talk Like a Pirate Day, but will create Pirate themed challenges that integrate the curriculum and go above and beyond what I've done in the past.
The pirate games and pirate decorations I am requesting will play an integral part of the room transformation and activities I am planning for that day.
