Our first day of school is now behind us. During our first day we did several fun activities as well as began learning our classroom and school expectations. We are still learning these today, but your children should be able to come home tonight and recite (as well as show you the signs) to our 5 class rules we went over in class today. If they are having a hard time remembering, remind them of the fish, talker, walker, good choices, and (my favorite) dear teacher. We will continue to work on these several times a day until we've got them down to ensure our class runs smoothly. We have also read a few books, as well as talked about bullying. Our class now knows that I, nor our school, will allow or put up with any bullying on campus. Bullying is a big deal to me and I refuse to put up with any form in my classroom.
I am working on a letter home to you all informing you of all the important information regarding how our class works and what to expect which should be coming home with your children in their tiger folder at the end of this week. Please sign their tiger planner this weekend letting me know you have received this as well as gone over it with your child so they know their parents know the expectations they are supposed to follow while at school. They also have three assignments for homework tonight they should have written in their planner:
reading: read for 15 minutes
science: have a parent sign their science contract and return to school
social studies:me bag
Please follow our class blog so you can see all the fun and exciting things we are learning each day!
