Upon our return, we are changing up our "Station" work. Instead of setting a 20 minute timer and having the students rotate around the room, we will be starting the transition to making better use of their time throughout the morning. You will see a sheet that starts with "Copy the list" then the daily papers will be attached. If your child brings any of this home, it will be for HOMEWORK that night! It must be returned the next day. This list is also used as a check off. The students can work down the list in any order after they copy it. The purpose of copying the list is to practice penmanship. They also will be working on organization skills during the time allowed to self monitor their work.
I also introduced some other positive behavior incentives and daily behavior charts. If your child has a daily behavior chart, it does need to be signed every day and returned. Please ask your child if they are being responsible and if they were asked to keep track of a daily chart. (We have about six students who are using these currently) The majority of the class will not have the daily chart, there just is no need, they are doing what is expected.
If you are free tonight, there is a PTO meeting at 6:30. I hope to see you there.
Check out Noor and his Flat Stanley! They are still coming in, so keep watching for yours.
Take a look at who used some of their Excellent Dollars to have lunch with me today! I loved spending that time with Giovanni and Nimrit! Enjoy your evening.
