One week down...

I hope this post finds all well, and your first week of school to have been a smooth one.  Hopefully by now you have had a chance to identify some of those "big rocks" we talked about a few weeks ago, and perhaps even started introducing them.  Remember - these are the practices you put in place for your kids to do that not only provide them with anchor pieces (pieces they can do independently), but more importantly build on those strategies that are essential for the students to reach automaticity in  (i.e. the skill goes "underground" and becomes second nature)in your content.  For those of you that would like to "play along", respond to this post with one of your "big rocks".  Have a great week!
