I hope you have all had a wonderful relaxing weekend out in the sunshine. These long hot days won't last much longer. The kids have continued to settle into new routines and make new friends this past week. In math we focused on sorting objects by attributes and introduced Number Corner. In Literacy we have been working on letter names and sounds, specifically the letters in our names. We have also been working on journal writing, which will be incorporated into our literacy workshop model.
Last week I also introduced the students to our classroom behavior system. In our room we use the red, yellow, green system. Each student starts the day at green. Students will reveive at least two verbal redirections before earning a yellow card. If the student continues to be disruptive, or ignores the rules and procedures after the yellow card they will receive a red card. When students receive a red card in class they will also be sent home with a red card detailing what happened in class that day. Please sign the red card that goes home and return it the following day in your child's communication folder. If students continually earn red cards the next step would be to visit Mrs. Mueller our principal. I will usually always also call home the first time a child receives a red card. If you have any questions or concerns about our classroom behavior system please feel free to contact me.
Please remember to check your child's communication folder every night. If their are papers that do not need to be returned, like student work, flyers, etc., please take them out and keep them at home. Tomorrow afternoon I will be sending home a laminated handwriting practice with the alphabet and your child's name. There will also be special pen in their folder that wipes away with water. Please have your child practice both sides of this sheet at least once per day. You may take it out and keep it at home, or leave it in the folder so it doesn't get lost. Important information comes home on a nightly basis so please get in the habit of checking every night.
