    This book is filled with practical advice and lists of many Responsive Classroom activities I was feeling really lost when it came to planning for the first few weeks of school, and now I feel that I have a much better idea of what to schedule and when in order to best set students up for success It breaks down suggestions by grade K 2, 3 4, 5 6 which was especially helpful and gave insights into the new grade level that I will be teaching Definitely one of my favorite teacher books

    This book is very important and helpful for new teachers Teaches a lot about how to set up a responsive classroom with morning meeting and other aspects of the model I really enjoyed reading it over a summer break and referred back to the book often during the school year.

    I didn t finish this book Part of that has to do with the fact that I got moved from 5th grade to 7th 8th grade while I was reading this Most of it really had to do with the fact that I lost interest in it The book has some great ideas don t get me wrong It just gets repetitive after a while I realize that s how parts of class are, but it felt odd reading relatively the same thing for every week I stopped in week 3 or 4 I didn t finish this book Part of that has to do with the fact that I got moved from 5th grade to 7th 8th grade while I was reading this Most of it really had to do with the fact that I lost interest in it The book has some great ideas don t get me wrong It just gets repetitive after a while I realize that s how parts of class are, but it felt odd reading relatively the same thing for every week I stopped in week 3 or 4

    I come from a teaching background where Harry Wong s The First of School was considered the holy text for starting the school year On my first day of starting school at my current district, the principal gave me The First Six Weeks I am now a convert This book provides so muchuseful information than greet every student at the door and smile to begin your school year As a matter of fact, I am skimming it now as a refresher before the new school year begins.

    I only read the k 2 and general overview sections, but I didn t find it very helpful Kinda sad that I spent 35 on this maybe would have been better if I was teaching older kids or actual subjects separately
