We spent time with Mrs. Umbach this week during our monthly guidance lesson. This lesson was about RESPECT. We learned about the meaning of the word respect, "The Golden Rule" and we read a story called Have You Filled A Bucket Today? We will refer to this often in class. It is a beautiful story about how to treat others, to fill their "bucket."
Mrs. Cimorelli and Mr. Yates have been teaching the children how to jump rope and Mr. Rigby taught the children songs about Dr. King.
Next week, we will take a break from our Book Club assignment but please continue the awesome reading! We are immersed in Readers Workshop now and we are developing nicely. Ask them about "FLIP/ FLOP" and you will hear lots of great stuff about our reading time. Finally, you reading with your child each night is always part of your child's success! Please continue to read each night at home. It is very exciting to see the changes and growth!
Have a great weekend everyone!
Our Giving Tree
After reading The Mitten Tree we collected lots of hats and mittens and gave them to a local shelter where children can have them if they need them. We will be making Valentine placemats for the Lawrenceville Meals on Wheels recipients next!
