That's how long my language arts curriculum is for the 1st week of school-47 objectives (granted some are review-but still)! I am all for throwing some academics into the first week-but this is completely disregarding the fact that we have to do assessments and set routines. I do a lot of classroom community-type activities the first week not to mention some fun read-alouds, things to hang up for Open House. You don't even know where the kids are yet! We have a reading adoption (but are fortunate in that we are allowed to supplement)-even starting Day 1 with that I think is just wrong. They are talking leveled readers/workstations everything. I'm not going to follow it-but seriously, how can someone write that on the page and think it's feasible?!
