Class Themes
This year’s theme is all about the Hero. Everything they read
and write has to do with mythological heroes, historical
heroes, their own heroes, and how students can be heroes in
their own community.

The other theme discussed in every unit is order vs. chaos.


Daily Routines
❖ Housekeeping:
➢ Teacher goes over any homework or assignments due that day and
addresses what they will be doing in class that day.

❖ Journal Entries:
➢ Almost every day, students will have a writing activity to do in
their journals. It may pertain to the current unit or may simply be
to improve their creative writing.

❖ Chromebook work:
➢ There is a class set of Chromebooks, so almost every class, the
lesson will require students to use technology.
Behavior/Discipline Plan
While observing and teaching this class so far, I have
noticed how mature and gifted these students are. If they
get out of control or talk too much, all the teacher does is
ask them to focus more or stop whatever they are doing that
is disruptive. In response, students are very respectful and
continue working.
