NAAPID in Room 306
You are cordially invited to visit Haisley School on Monday, February 8th for NAAPID. National African American Parent Involvement Day.
You are also cordially invited to visit us ANY DAY YOU’D LIKE! J
There are special things to do on this day, but my favorite part is just seeing what we do on a Monday.
Here’s what our schedule looks like:
Morning Message (this is projected on the board)
11:25 Lunch (our kids eat first, recess second)
QT – this is a moment of quiet time. Kids use this time to work on anything from the morning they need to finish or a quiet activity around the room. It’s only ten minutes, but it’s one of their favorite parts of our day.
We do a million cool things during our reading block time. We have a mini lesson (usually in front of the easel, on the carpet) that is about something we are working on during the week. These mini lessons are done constantly. We record our thoughts and talk about specific strategies or learning objectives.
Some of the things we work on: root words, making connections, reading groups, reading, writing about our reading in our reader’s notebooks, thank you cards (we have a section in our writer’s notebook where we write these, and then we make a card), and anything else we are working on for the week. We often have projects that have to do with social studies or science too.
1:35 Recess (early because of our assembly)
2:30 Assembly Rhythm on a Stick in the MPR
3:00ish Literary discussion about the book we are reading out loud. This is one of my favorite times of the day. We read, we talk, we write, and we enjoy the book we are reading as a group. I LOVE seeing your kids faces when I’m reading them a book. They LOVE to hear a book being read t them too. We have amazing discussions!
3:45 Get the classroom ready
3:59 Bell rings
Tea with Ms. Scarnecchia from 4-5. Come and chat with the principal!
