Binder check and missing assignment reports (M.A.R.'s). Do all students have their planners, and are writing in them? Feel free to watch this new 5 min. video on completing an AVID binder check sheet. Fill out AVID binder checks with partners, and then review missing assignments. Simply glance at your HC's Skyward Missing Assignment report on your computer, and call up the students with missing assignments. Do this while students are doing binder checks- and if there are a lot, start with the kids who are missing the most.
Today break from Cornell Notes to play PBIS Bingo! Invite students to fill in a blank bingo card with bullets from the matrix. Then, have the students play by calling out random items! Use scraps of paper or anything tiny for markers :)
Begin another Cornell Notes topic. Choose a video from the Watch section, read together the Ice Cream article from the staff meeting, or possibly project an article about Malala. Invite students to mark the text and take notes on your selection. If finished early, compare notes with a partner, and in another color, add new information.
After a day of note taking, review the notes by possibly chunking into sections and writing a main idea after each section. Use those main ideas to write a summary of the article/video. If done early, let them choose a video from the link on the right.
It's Friday! What does your class need? A game outside against another HC? To check off missing assignments? A connecting activity? To organize their backpacks? To watch a longer TedTalk? Take a walk together? You choose, but make it meaningful and a great way to send kids into the weekend!
