News You Can Use
The class has earned their next reward party it will be sometime next week. We will be discussing the party on Monday.
I have included a link to this week's personification Padlet. Take a peek.
This week the PAWS Pride lesson focused on team building. Each child had the opportunity to work together with a group to complete a task. Ask your child how they did.
This week each class extended the concept of team by developing a class goal based on the behavior matrix. Each class will have the month of February to meet their goal by demonstrating the behavior at least 80% of the month. If they meet the goal as a team, they will be rewarded at the end of the month. Ask your child about the goal and reward their class decided upon.

Tuesday-We had more time to build are car,test it,and see if we want to do our final product today.We also now have clay in our eggs to make it as heavy as a real egg.
Wednesday-Today we pretty much did what we did in Tuesday,but more group are getting their final product still and testing.One group has a giant wall and it makes the car bounce back a lot!
Thursday-Today we did the same thing again but my group got a little extra time to test.Two of the people in my group made 2 extra cars on each side for their little plastic animals.One was a turtle (with the shell off it looks like a flying squirrel) and the other is a Koala.
Friday-Today we had about 10-20 minutes to add anything else we want to andon Monday we will use the real egg so we had to get our final preparations.One group was testing and their car exploded in to pieces!
