Notes from my reading:
Gathering place for brain & body breaks: Our large carpet where we already have our morning meeting. This is already our "gathering" place. It is located close to my whiteboards, books, and other materials I will need.
Developing the concept of "good fit" books: I'm worried about having enough books to fill all of my book baskets. I'm sure my school librarian is going to FLIP when I tell her how many books I want to check out for an extended period. I think once we can start adding class books we create, or even the little flip books that we make in class - that will help. Finding enough books at the pre-reading stage is also always a feat in our school. Does anyone else ever have this problem?
Calm signal for check-in process: I plan to use my little musical wand.
Correct modeling & Incorrect modeling: I really like this idea. I always model the correct way, but I guess I don't pay enough attention to incorrect modeling. This is one area that I'm going to pay closer attention to.
