YESS at Lake International is off to a great start! In our first week and a half, we have spent time getting to know each other by interviewing each other, sharing our personal values, and playing the m n’m game. Because this is our first year, we are still matching up mentors and mentees, and we will be ready this week! We spent a lot of time working on our shared agreements, and illustrating their favorite. Students wrote in their journals about what they need from teachers to be successful, and their answers were compiled on a poster outside our classroom, which students and parents have enjoyed reading! This week we will be focusing on the mentor/mentee relationship and finishing our Time Capsules.
