We’ve had a bit of a rough week with friendships in our room. I’ve heard from parents and students that various children aren’t being kind to one another (out on the playground). We talked about two things: Think about the words you are saying & say your words nicely. We’re going to continue talking and role playing because each one of your children is special to me and I want to help them to develop friendships.
Our class received the “Golden Record” award from Ms. Brennan, our music teacher. This is given to the class who earns the most good behavior points in the cycle. Receiving this award made us all feel proud of ourselves and reinforced that this group of kids can work together to achieve great things!
You may have noticed that you place papers in your child’s Froggy Folder on the “Return to School” side and they are still in the folder when your son/daughter returns home. These papers are for your child to bring to me every morning. We have talked about this being the children’s responsibility since the first day of school. Every morning I remind the class to look inside their Froggy Folder to see if there are papers for me. I don’t take them out myself because I’m training the children to be organized and think about their responsibilities at school. You can help when you see these papers by reminding your son/daughter to turn them in each morning. Together, I think we can help the kids to remember this small part of our daily routine.
