First day

Well.. we got through the first day of school!  I have 33 students, every face lit up with excitement the minute I started doing WBT.  They are so excited for the scoreboard.  I am looking forward to a wonderful year.  They were able to follow all the of the rules effortlessly.  Tomorrow I will be introducing the Super Speed Reading and Math.  I have to get them through the incentives.  I am sure they will be very motivated..I have a very eager bunch that are looking for defeating their personal best!

Next week we will be diving into the curriculum.. Full speed ahead!!!!!

Getting Ready for 2012/2013 School year

There are so many ways to prepare your self mentally for the start of the school year.  Many times I spend this time of the year gathering up new material, that I would want to implement, within the classroom.  It is very comforting to know that I had such a wonderful experience with WBT.  I am ready to use all of the wonderful hooks, that WBT has to offer.  I am planning on sending Super Speed Reading and Math home with the students.  I received so many compliments from parents, in regards to their child's advancement in both Mathematics and Reading.  The fact that they are timed against themselves just provides each and every student comfort, in regards to self esteem.  I see that every student moved on to 4th grade with so much more confidence than they had entering 3rd grade.  STEM  coupled with advancement in technology is the trend.  One plans on seeking out various grants and monies, that will help contribute to such concepts, within the classroom environment!
