We spent a lot of time teaching rules, routines, and procedures. This is critical when managing a classroom full of 24 kiddos. We learned right away how to walk in a hall. This is our hall chant we repeat to remind us how to walk in a line. After we built the anchor chart and modeled what a good line looks like and sounds like I had the kids glue the hall chant into their poetry journal and illustrate what a line looks like.
We graphed how many letters are in your name.
Here are some anchor charts we completed.
I love the way Life in First Grade did her number anchor charts.
