First Week of School!

Wow! Our first week is complete! Even though it was only three days, we have sure accomplished a lot! I have really enjoyed getting to our class!  What an amazing group of awesome people!

This week students presented their “All Abot Me” bags to help us learn a little bit more about each other.  We also wrote our own Classroom Constitution or our rules for our classroom.  We did some activities to help us think about what we wanted our classroom to be like, and what we wanted our school year to be like, then we wrote a Class constitution together and we ALL signed it! We also created a class mission. Our mission is: We are here to lear, have fun and make friends.

We also read a few picture books and talked about the theme of the story (the author’s message, lesson or the moral of the story).  We then worked on making our theme/message fit on a bumper sticker (short and sweet and to the point).  All of the books centered around the theme of stepping up to bullies and being nice to everyone.  Once again, we are a “Be NICE” school, we will be learning more about this throughout the year.

We also talked about how each one of us is important, each one of us matters! We learned that each of us has Multiple Intelligences and we are all smart in our own way. Students then wrote about a way they are smart and why the world needs them.

We have been learning many new routines and procedures this week, we will continue to work on them in the weeks to come. Help your child to be successful by looking at your child’s planner every night and also initialing your child’s planner every night. By initialing the planner you are saying that they completed their homework.  For the next few weeks please help them in filling out the Reading Log. This is found at the very front of the planner. It should be filled out completely each night that reading is assigned. Hopefully soon, they will be able to complete this on their own.

Enjoy the long weekend! Remember, no school on Monday!
