Great First Full Week

What an amazing first full week of school we have had. We ended it with our character word of the month “kindness”, and shared Whoever You Are, by Mem Fox. It was nice to share ways we are all different and ways we are all the same as well as accepting others. We are all kind to whoever, wherever, all around the world!!!!!

Guided Math Centers

Math is taught in a guided center setting, where when the teacher is facilitating a group lesson, the other students are working in a center independently.

This group is working on even and odd numbers.  They are completing a sorting center while waiting for their guided lesson.

Is it Tattling or Reporting?

Knowing the difference whether you are reporting a situation that could be harmful or dangerous or tattling on someone, is a very tricky concept to understand.

A Bad Case of Tattle Tongue helped us to understand the differences between tattling and reporting.

Character Education

Every Friday afternoon, we are going to learn all about character education. Each month we will focus on a new topic or word and practice different ways to apply it into our daily lives.

Kindness is  our focus for September.

Each student received a Random Acts of Kindness board.  Every time they  perform an act of kindness, they are going to document it by coloring in the act.
