Well today we started our second week, albeit a short one due to Labor Day. Today was also picture day and that pretty well ate up the day. However, we did to take care of some administrative tasks and I introduced what I call Current Events. I have the kids watch a website that creates a newscast everyday, www.channelone.com, and then fill out a form I have created. They do one each Monday, so it was good to get that out of the way. Tomorrow we get going earnest with exploration.
But before that I am off to another training on IFV’s or Intentional Focus Visits. These are short observations in the classroom and the training is, I presume, to teach how to use the new forms since I have been to four of these before. I really don’t like these meetings very much. After the meeting it is off to fix some plumbing and then three miles to run. See you tomorrow.
