Each Thursday, “Thursday Folders” containing all the week’s work will also be sent home. Please review your child’s work, then sign and send back on Friday. Information can also be found on my e-board site on the Tatem School Website.

This past week...
This week we spent a lot of time getting to know one another, set goals, and became comfortable with classroom procedures.
During Morning Meeting we learned how to properly greet one another through the handshake, ball toss and butterfly greeting. We strengthened our team building skills by playing Ten, Co-Seeki, going on a Human Scavenger Hunt and even used team-work to open a puzzle using only pencils! Some students had the opportunity to share and take questions or comments. Ask your child to show you these activities!
4B reviewed and practiced important classroom routines such as walking in the hall, and our quiet signals.
Poets published “Biography Poems” as a way of introducing ourselves to one another.
We discussed our three school rules (Take Care Of Yourself, Each Other, and Our School) and brainstormed individual and class expectations as well as hopes and dreams for the year.
Students began brainstorming for their “T-Riffic Summer” writing prompt. Students will be authoring a brief narrative highlighting a specific summer event for a bulletin board!
