Pepper is our STAR of the Week. Her favorite book is Bucket Filling from A-Z by Carol McCloud and Caryn Butzke. Here is what students had to say about Pepper:
"She shows respect to the whole class'" - Jalen
"I like Pepper." - Rajveer
"She played with me when I asked her." - Sriya
"She plays with me." - Samrat
"She's smart and she doesn't throw a fit." - Maya
"She has a big imagination." - Lilian
.Every day we start with a Morning Meeting, utilizing elements from Responsive Classroom. On the day pictured, students greeted one another with a fun chant. Then students shared how they were feeling that morning. Our classroom meetings are an important part of building community in TK.
The growth these students have made this year continues to amaze. Here they are writing in their new journals with lines and using skills that they learned from the Handwriting Without Tears program.
For science on Vv week, students created and observed a vortex. Then they recorded their observations in their science journals.
Students also used coding skills to guide Bee Bots through a maze. This was a favorite activity for many.
Just for fun, here many of us are in the silly hats we made last Friday celebrating Dr. Seuss week and Read Across America Day.
Finally, here we are showing gratitude by sharing in the writing of a thank you note to the people at My Kid's Dentist who came to our class and gave a wonderful presentation on dental health last week. When I delivered it to their office, they were so happy. It made their day!
