News from Room 17
We have had a busy FALL!
Halloween and Pumpkin Math
Acts of Kindness
Here is a video from guidance that the kiddos asked me to post here for you to see!
You may have heard your child talk about their ' secret buddy'! I have assigned each student a different secret buddy for the month! They have notes they can leave their buddy, and lists of ideas ( like letting them cut in line!) they can do for their buddies. If they think their buddies are figuring out that they are their secret friend, the kiddos have been instructed to "trick" their buddy into thinking it might be someone else by letting someone else cut them in line, or sitting near someone else at lunch, etc etc!!! It has been so fun and uplifting to see them secretly plotting doing and writing nice, kind things for one another! During these last 2 weeks, I'll be encouraging them to do something daily, and I will be adding in some treats secretly to keep them all guessing! Heehee! SHHH when they say they got a candy cane from their secret buddy, it might be me!
