Where 4th graders learn and grow!
October 5th, 2018
We had a busy week full of learning. I have been working with students on how to self regulate their bodies and brains. I am attaching a great article on regulation and executive functioning. Hope you find these as helpful as I do.
I am sending home ANOTHER permission slip for a sign up, but you don't have to complete it. It's only if your child wishes to use Storyjumper.com at home. It's a book writing site. They create, author and illustrate stories. It's fun! You do not need to do this if they are only using the program at school. But if you child LOVES to play around on it, they may want you to sign up.
Today is homecoming. I hope students will come down and see Harmony and Tenor in the parade. In the email you will find a lot of sign ups for the Halloween party and conferences.
30 Ways to teach self regulation at home and at school
Parent Peek into Our Week!
As I work with students to develop growth mindsets and grit, I want to plan a student/parent Growth Mindset game night. For this to happen, I am counting on donations of games in order to make this happen. I am attaching an Amazon Wishlist link with the games I need. Our PTO is so generous, and I have been using the funds for other classroom materials. These games exceed my allotted funds. If you wish to donate a game, please see Mrs. Geise's wish list in the link below.
