We are continuing to learn how to show the WestWood Ways by being:
Students have learned expectations in the classroom, specials, recess and lunch. When students are not showing the WestWood Way they will receive a coaching ticket and have a conversation about what they need to focus on, I will share coaching points with them and together we will come up with an appropriate response. The coaching slip is new this year and is an opportunity for your child to learn and grow. If a coaching slip comes home please have a positive discussion with your child about what they learned from this situation. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
This week in reading we will focus on reading for meaning and adjusting our initial theories once we learn more about the text. Students will write about what their first thoughts were of a story and then write new ideas as they read more. We will launch book clubs and readers will learn what active participation looks and sounds like during book club.
