Week of September 7-11
What did we learn this week?
We can use playdough to practice writing our names! We also use it to create our sight words that we are working on. (I, am, can). If you have playdough at home- this is a great activity to practice our words and names!
We learned that the Magic Triad has 3 parts. A Kind Word, a Kind Touch, and a Smile are the 3 parts to make a happy classroom! We are working on doing all of these things with our peers in order to make a good classroom climate. Talk with your child each night how they used the Magic Triad with their friend that day. I will frequently talk to kids about their behavior using this language ("Are we using kind words right now?" or "How can we change what we said into a kind word?")
We got to tour other classrooms in the school this morning to find out a little more about E-Time. We learned that on Friday mornings, we get to have one hour of E-time. Based on our interests, we will explore different areas and learn! So excited!!

SUPER IMPORTANT!!! Monthly Presentations
At the end of each month, your child will be doing a very short oral presentation in front of their peers in our classroom.
Today you will have a bright pink paper in the folder discussing the September Oral Presentation. I will send a separate email outlining what these will look like in our classroom and how you can help your child at home.
Please be sure to look at this paper carefully and let me know if you should have any questions!!

Your child will one day be an MVP too!! Talk with your child how we cheer for each other when they get an MVP, and how we will strive to be our very best in hopes to be an MVP too!! :)
A Message from Mrs. Saxon...
We loved having so many parents at Family Friday Lunch today! I"m sorry I didn't have a chance to talk to many of you. In the lunchroom, it is my first priority to make sure students are eating their food and then leaving the lunchroom as quickly as possible before the 1st grade class comes to eat. Dismissal can be a little crazy so we would really appreciate your help encouraging your child to eat quickly so they can join their class again and head to recess. Also, don't forgot to sign out in the front office after you eat with your child.
We have learned SO much!! Enjoy your long weekend. See you Tuesday!! :)
