It is always exciting to start a new school year! I am very anxious to apply the new skills and ideas I picked up over the summer to my 2016-2017 classes! This past week was devoted mainly to acclimmating all my students to the class they are in with me and getting housekeeping items taken care of ……. establishing Edmodo, PowerMyLearning, Typing Club etc. accounts. We also went over the “rules” in my room and the grading system I will be using. Here it is:
