Daily routine

  • Typical Work Day:

    • When Students come in there is a sketchbook entry on the board which goes in their interactive sketchbooks. They work on this while I do attendance.

    • I introduce or “recap” major points for the project.

    • If we recently started, or if we are completing a project I put the requirements on the board.

      • For example...

Students drew a variety of stamps that include their initials or names.

They then chose their favorite one and created a stamp with this “mark”.
