I’m thinking about starting my classes with the question “Why do we read?” I’ll have some individual, partner, and small group activities, and then we’ll watch the video here and react to it. I’m curious what the kids will think about the video and why they read.
Update: I worked for about four hours at the school today. I made copies, arranged desks, finished my postings, completed my paperwork, and finished all of my online trainings. Tomorrow I’m going in to re-arrange my office space because I’m sharing a desk with two other teachers, and (in truth) I really don’t need a desk. I don’t store things in the office, but I do bring some work there on occasion. Three days until the kids arrive!
