What about scheduling? I don't even think about it until midway through the first week that the kids are back. That way the specials' classes (art, music, p.e., guidance, library) are settled, and the special ed teachers have their schedules. The first week and a half of school is when I do my rechecks and mass screenings on the Kindergarten classes. I usually start seeing kids mid-week of the 2nd week of school. The first few sessions consist of checking progress with my students & more than likely pulling a game out of the cabinet to reduce the planning factor!
How does my list compare with yours?
