Laying the Foundation...

School starts for our students in one week. Teachers are frantically putting their classrooms together, lesson plans to prepare for the first week...they are preparing to Lay the Foundation for these students. Teachers recognize the importance of laying the foundation. The beginning of the year is crucial, setting up routines and structures within the classroom help students focus on the tasks at hand.

Middle school is such a crucial time. It is the time when students decide what type of student they want to be. It is the tipping point of where they want to go...

Math is a subject that is so challenging for most of them that it begins to make students question who they are as students, as people. It is crucial on so many levels developmentally...we want students to perceive themselves ad competent and careful.

Laying the Foundation is an important skill that students learn. Getting help, where necessary, can drastically improve the odds of their long term success. Learning how to question, work hard, make mistakes and learn from them, are skills, as a professional, continue to have.

So, in one week, I will need to be prepared for everything they plan on bringing...

So....let's bring it!
