Mrs. Leith and her mother-in-law taught us a fun game, a little Spanish, and gifted each student with a mini-pinata. It was a lot of fun.
The students have learned how to say Merry Christmas in German as well. This photo is a little manger we have in the classroom.
Looks like fun!
Anxiously awaiting to call out, "Loteria!"
Improving Responsibility and Respectful
Wednesday we had a class meeting on how to make our class more responsible, fair, and respectful. It was interesting as the students nailed each of the three areas I was most concerned with: blurting out, not completely class jobs, and turning work in late. I asked the students what consequences they would suggest to keep everyone accountable. Let me just say we have some that feel pretty passionately about consequences, but we took votes:
This is the outcome:
Blurting out during lessons: 2 wisdom tickets
Undone class jobs (milk count, sharpening pencils,
erasing board, etc.): 10 tickets
If work is not turned in when due:
Work must be done during recess plus 5 wisdom tickets
If not completed by 2nd day, miss recess and 10 tickets
If not completed by 3rd day, no grade.
