This time of year is notoriously hard for students to make good choices. The weather is getting nice and in turn their behavior goes downhill. We started Class DOJO today and I love it! The students did amazing and I think it will help to be partnered up with you to keep track of their choices. Talk with your kids about their choices at night. Focus on the positives, but also take some time to talk about what they can improve on.
Check out our new VIP table! I am so excited about this. For every 5 points students get from Class DOJO they will get to put a character card in the bucket. Students also can recommend other students to receive character cards. If they observe a student showing character they tell me about it and are able to give that students a card. Every day starting Monday I will pull two character cards from the bucket. Those kids will get to sit at the VIP table for the day. There are fun writing utensils, erasers, and coloring books. I got some items to get our table started, but if you have anything that you could contribute we would love it!
During math we continued to talk about 3D shapes. Students used cubes to make new shapes.
We started our last descriptive writing piece today. Students picked a picture and started a graphic organizer to describe what was going on.
We sequenced the events of our weekly story, Mama’s Birthday Present.
We learned that ay comes at the end of words and ai is found in the middle.
The students did amazing on art today!
