I've been teaching 1st for the past 5 years, and I always spent the first two weeks (1) reviewing Kindergarten, (2) introducing, modeling, practicing, and reviewing rules & procedures, and (3) completing AIMSweb introductory testing (math). We don't do running records in reading, so I have to wait until we do our Fall DIBELS screening to get a real idea of where my kids are there (aside from anecdotal information derived during class, and their 2nd grade records). What do you do during the first two weeks of school? I know that 3rd grade is expected to "dive in" to lesson work a lot sooner than 1st, so I can't wait to do "lesson 1" in our Storytown basals that long. (We don't have the materials to not use Storytown, so we're having to align them and make them work (or purchase the materials ourselves)). Any suggestions would be great!
