Life Lessons

This week has been filled with life lessons.. Stealing, lying, and making mistakes

What we've learned:

We should not bring toys or personal items to school.

Lying is never okay and we will be caught.

Stealing is horrible. It hurts feelings and makes people not trust us. We are still missing the plastic hamster...

Making Mistakes: a student thought she brought something to school and that someone took it. After further investigation at home, she found it. We immediately forgave her and are so happy that she made a mistake instead of having something stolen!

I take great pride in helping teach these life lessons. We stop what we are doing to learn a little about life. I hope that we walk away from this week as the honest, caring, fun loving group that I was blessed with on day 1.

Music Program

Dear Parents,

We are very excited to show off the hard work your students have been doing in music class this year with a performance! The second grade concert will begin promptly at 7:00 PM on Thursday, December 18th in the CRES gymnasium. Students should report to their homeroom teacher’s Classrooms at 6:45 PM. The performance will last about 20-30 minutes. Students should wear semi-formal attire they can move freely in such as polos, dress shirts, slacks, and dresses or long skirts for the girls. Any shoes are fine. If you have any questions, please e-mail me atshussain@hse.k12.in.us or call (317) 594-4170 and ask to be connected the music teacher.

Behavior Plan

With the cold weather rolling in and breaks from school coming up, Inhave decided to add a new behavior plan into our routine!

The whole class behavior chart is working really well!! They will color in a word after completing tasks. The goal is to color all the way to the !. Please look to see if they have had any reminders during the day or notes. It will be in their GO folder each night!

At the end of the week, if they have made it to the ! each day, they get a coupon AND a trip to the treasure box! If they make it to the word DAY each day, they get a coupon!

Moby Max:

Moby Max is a website that is used for MANY different reasons. The reason that we as educators like it is for Math. I like how it gives the students math at their level. It also self motivates by allowing game time when tasks are completed. Everyone is set up but not everyone has been on yet!
