It has been WAY too long since I have posted anything on our blog.  This week the whole school is focusing on kindness.  It is our class goal for the week!  We have been working on completing five different acts of kindness daily.  Our weekly social cognition lesson will also focus on kindness.  Students have been receiving kindness tickets, if I catch them being kind.  Tomorrow we will start our day by watching this video.  Random Acts of Kindness

We hope that our kindness will inspire others!

Math Thinking

We have been working on collecting different strategies to solve addition and subtraction story problems.  We can't wait for you to check out the amazing math work on our Marvelous Math Wall tomorrow at Open House.

Tooth Tutor!

We had a visit from the tooth tutor today.  We learned about how to keep our teeth healthy!

Be on the lookout in Thursday folders for two important papers!  One is a list of What Good Readers Do.  This is a great list of strategies to be encouraging at home.  Students should spend about ten minutes a day reading to themselves, a family member, or being read to!  There will also be a list of sight words that students can practice reading and writing at home.  Different lists will come home throughout the school year.  Thanks for helping your child learn!

Stamina and Classroom Rules

We have been working on our reading and writing stamina.  On Friday, we wrote for 17 minutes and read for 10 minutes! Tomorrow students are going to begin shopping for their own books in our classroom library. 

We worked on creating our classroom rules this week.  We decided on four classroom rules and signed our names to them!

Happy Summer!

Here are a few pictures from the last couple days of school.

I have enjoyed having these wonderful kiddos in my class this year.  They are all amazing, and they are all ready for their second grade adventures.  Have a great summer!
