Ship's Log

Week of March 11, 2019

It looks like SPRING may start to make an appearance this week and students can get outside to recess most everyday!! YEAH!

Thank you to Emily Abad for making us some butterflies- we have some in the office and will get some to each of you for recognizing all the kind acts and other behaviors you want to reinforce. You can fill out the front of the butterfly with student's name and act of kindness- you can also use the back. Put them in the basket in the office and Marian will put them up in the lobby! Let's spread spring with Butterflies everywhere!!!

Let's keep recognizing students for all the kind and respectful things they do. You can still recommend students for the #GoodNewsCallOftheDay too!

Don't forget to make your PAWSitive Referrals! We're almost half way through the year so we need to TRIPLE or efforts... try to suggest a couple each week!

Teach Like A Pirate!

What strategy are YOU trying this week? What gets students running INTO your classroom?

The 'P' in pirate stands for Passion: "Only passions, great passions, can elevate the soul to great things."- Denis Diderot

read or re-read the Passion chapter this week. What are your Content, Professional, and personal passions ad how can you incorporate those into your lessons?

Let me know if you use any PIRATE hooks so we can share with colleagues!
