Reflection: Routines and Procedures Focusing on Vocabulary - Section 2: Getting Down to Business


This lesson was my first back from our winter break.  As such, my students were exhausted.  (Who am I kidding here?  I was exhausted too!) 

Because this lesson is a good combination of skills review with a new text, it makes a great first-day-back activity.  They have seen the vocabulary activity before, and they're reviewing a summarizing skill we've been working on all year.  However, I'm not boring them with a text they've seen before.

This is a great way to welcome them back and get their heads back in the game!
