We had a really grrrrrreat day in 1-S. I was proud to see students working hard and so quietly for much of the day. They are really getting the hang of this “first grade” stuff! Walking in the hallways silently helps others to learn. Being kind to one another on the playground helps others feel happy. Keep up the great work!
Students had a great time hearing the non-fiction selection called “Can You Hear a Rainbow?” It is about a boy, Chris, who is deaf. Ask your child what they learned about in this reading. They made great connections and I could tell some students were impacted by the loss of a sense. How did Chris know to wake up in the morning if he can’t hear an alarm clock? What gave him a clue that dinner is ready if he can’t hear his mother calling? Turn off the volume on the tv tonight and try to figure out what the actors are saying. Quite an interesting topic today!
Unfortunately we had two “not-so-great” parts of the day. It seems as though some first or second graders are having trouble in the bathroom. We also heard things from the lunchroom aides about the cafeteria. Mr. Howe had a serious conversation with all students in our wing today. We hope that this solves any issues for the future. I appreciate any reminders you can give to your children at home. The proper way to use the rest room, and how to clean up at the lunch table. As Mrs. Kane so clearly put it, “Hambright is our home, when we are away from home.” Let’s take care of it!!
Thank you as always!
