Our book club members got together for a great discussion around classrooms and routines. It's interesting to note, how teachers approach ideas differently. After reading chapter 8, one teacher created a "Curiosity Notebook," while another started a "Wonder Board." We talked about small group work and it's importance. It needs to be noted that some teachers give up quickly on small group because they feel that students working can be loud and disruptive. Our own experience, proves that by spending time with developing relationships, routines and expectations... small group work can be very successful.
