March 29, 2016
Happy Spring! We are excited to start term 3 of second grade with your children and watch them continue to grow into...third graders!
We celebrated the end of our inquiry unit on Communication with our curriculum share! Thank you to all the families who attended and below are some photos for those of you who could not make it.
Amy and Hannah
- There is no school this Friday, April 1st for Parent Teacher Conferences.
- If you cannot make your scheduled Parent-Teacher Conference time, please contact teachers to reschedule. Thank you!
- 2C's field trip to Ellis Island is Tuesday, April 5th. If you send your child to school with lunch that day, please send it in a paper or plastic bag that can be thrown out so that we do not have to carry lunch boxes back. Thank you!
Brooklyn Prospect Arrives in Barcelona!
Principled Student of the Week #1: Aleko
Aleko exemplifies what it means to be principled at Brooklyn Prospect. Other students gave examples of how he is honest, fair, respectful, and responsible:
- "One day at science, we were playing a game. We got to a tricky place and another group playing the game told us their answers, but Aleko wasn't disrespectful and said 'aw man.'"
- "Yesterday Aleko was trying out his headphones to listen better, and he had a good talk with the teachers about if it is helping him listen."
"When Aleko was playing a game both he and another kid asked to be "it." Aleko let it go and let the other person be "it."
"One day Aleko was jumping around another student and the teacher saw and said, 'Stop,' and he was honest and stopped."
"At the park, he made safe choices and followed directions."
"I was lonely and I asked Aleko if I could play. He let me and I really like his game."
"A couple of minutes ago, he got the honor of being the student of the week and maturely showed happiness.
Principled Student of the Week #2: Xavier
- "He is always funny at the right times and gives silent signals at the right times. It helps the class because if we were reading he would show his ideas in a silent way."
- "In the beginning of the year, Xavier was always quiet at the right times and was a role model."
"If I'm not in line, he tells me nicely to be in line spots and it helps me remember."
When we did math, Xavier was my partner and when I didn't know what to do, he said, 'I don't think it's this, I think it's this,' in a nice way."
"At dance I tripped over Xavier, and he understood it was an accident and said it was okay."
"When there were three people who got to start choice time early one day, Xavier spoke up and was honest that he made a mistake and waited his turn to start choice time."
"Once when there was a partner reading thing, Xavier was my partner. He helped me figure out the answer by giving me clues without telling me the answer."
