2018 Begins…


Today’s Objective(s): SWBAT

  1. Explain the different components to the Daily Board
  2. Reflect on their performance during Semester 1
  3. Identify the things they did well in the first semester, and plan ways to build on them, as well as the things they could have done better.

Do Now – 10 minutes

  • Take 3 minutes and study the side board – what I’ve named the Daily Board, and be ready to answer questions about it
  • We’ll discuss as a class thereafter

LESSON – 40 minutes

Today is all about reflection, and to reflect properly, we have to start by taking notice, and being fully conscious of the thing(s) we’re reflecting about. So, please take 3 mins and do the following

  • Please take out a piece of lined paper and make it look like the example on the board
  • Log into your Parent Portal and get 2 things. First, the grade you received on your final challenge. Second, your overall grade for semester 1. Write them both down in the correct place on your paper, then close your computer and put it away

Now, on the paper that you’ve set up as instructed, you’ll be responding to the following prompts. ((No need to write the questions down.))

This Week’s Agenda

No school.
We’ll explore the Daily Board and then spend some time reflecting on Semester 1 of Challenge.
We’ll once again explore the Daily Board, and then we’ll look ahead and set some goals for Semester 2 of Challenge.
It’s a short day, but we’ll be doing a quick restorative circle.
