Off to a great start!
We've been working on classroom routines. We are learning to work together and follow directions. Please continue to support your child's success by:
- promoting regular attendance
- cleaning folder and backpack daily
- returning workstation materials if found in your child's backpack
- checking behavior calendar and discuss any notes regarding progress
- providing comfortable and safe clothing that is appropriate for the weather and easy to manage
- assuring that shoe laces are secured before school
- reading together at least 20 minutes daily
- playing games together often
- We are learning to identify our emotions with words like, "I feel mad."
- We are learning to use problem solving skills such as taking turns, ignoring bad behavior, and asking a teacher for help.
- We are learning to respond when others speak. We need to respond with words or hand gestures.
- We are learning to respect people. We will follow directions and class rules.
- We are learning to respect property. We use materials as directed and we do not take classroom materials home.
