Best Beginning Ever!
"No, David" and "David Goes to School" are the best books ever to introduce expected classroom behavior. I have read these at the beginning of the last 2 years. It's quite entertaining to watch the kids' reactions to the situations David finds himself in. So, as a little reminder this year, I drew this anchor chart and the kids helped me come up for good expectations to have in the classroom! Isn't it cute? Totally worth the 20 extra minutes it took me to draw David. Kevin, my husband laughed at me. He teaches 6th grade at a private school and it is quite a different experience. He does a GREAT job with the middle schools, but he thinks I'm a good "Artsy" teacher for 2nd grade. Maybe he's right! I'm okay with that!
