HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!
The Mindfulness Program allows instructors from Minds Over Matter to come into our classroom to teach mindfulness.
Mindfulness is a life skill that gives children tools to focus their attention, regulate their emotions and create stillness within their bodies. This program is non-secular and is not meditation. It’s about paying attention to what is happening in and around your mind and body right now. Practicing this focused attention helps children learn how to calm themselves during stressful times, improves performance, boosts the immune system, and increases empathy for self and others.
CAP Book Club
Our class will also be sharing information from the book on their blogs so feel free to grab a copy of the book and read along with us!
During RtI, the 5th graders are tackling volume and then will move into decimals while the 4th graders are working with additional multiplication and division strategies.
