Reflection: Routines and Procedures All The Colors of the Wind (And Other Stuff): Color Symbolism's Multiple Meanings - Section 1: Intro & Welcome: It's National Buy a Donut Day


While I find value in the sense of community my classes build through the daily rituals and routines, and encourage them to enjoy what we do, I have found an increasing number of students using this time to play around, rather than get focused. As such, I took the opportunity to push through the welcome today, and rather than focus on the Daily Holiday, immediately moved to the agenda, and upcoming important dates (homework due today, scary story example due tomorrow, paper due in two days, test in two days).
