A LYS Teacher shares her ode:
Ode to Fundamental 5
Fundamental 5, how you challenge me so,
You have renewed in me that “new teacher” glow.
Lesson framing, mental filters, cognitive tools and more,
Offer to me new meanings galore.
I am beside myself with the new tasks at hand,
I’ll prove I can frame a lesson, using rigor on demand.
I will occupy the power zone with proximity instruction,
Add to it meaningful praise and it equals minimal disruption.
I will commit to this practice with all that’s in me,
I will strive to engage and assess with glee.
Fundamental 5… you behoove me to tears,
I am a teacher with a plan; I’ll deliver it with no fears.
