First Day ... RESPECT
On the first day of school, I talked to the students about the word RESPECT. After talking about the work I had them sign a letter in the word as a kind of contract. I asked them to be respectful to their classmates, room, and teacher. I have the quote below as type of classroom theme. I tell my students almost every day that I don't expect them to be a professional artist at their young ages... All I ask is that they try their hardest!
