smile and will ask them how their evenings or
weekend were. I will then direct them to put their
belongings away in the coat closet where their
name is labeled, and then sit at the seat with their
labeled name tag and begin the bell ringer that is
on the board. Then before the class begins the
instruction I will ask the students if they have any
questions on their homework, I will tell them the
upcoming events, and I will also allow them time
to talk about their weekends and their favorite
part about school is so far.
