  • ★  Practicing multiplication facts and getting back into the math groove
  • ★  Learning the classroom procedures and expectations
  • ★  Taking exciting new books out of the library and reading at Quiet Time
  • ★  Setting up new binders, notebooks, writing journal and cubbies
  • ★  Practicing how to be a student in the classroom again and showing how to be caring andcooperative with classmates
    • ★  Taking exercise breaks with GoNoodle (website) or outside team-building games
