The End is Near!!
The "violence" could occur as intimidation, verbal assaults as well as physical assaults. Sometimes, the student "violence" is initiated by the parents. The "violence" can be initiated because the parent doesn't like the teacher, the student doesn't like the teacher, etc. When this "violence" happens, the teacher is usually surprised and shocked because we are not used to students being violent with adults.
We wanted to bring this to your attention because this has become a nationwide issue. We will continue to support all of you here and if you have any concerns, please feel free to let us know.
What's Happening This Month
The next 2 weeks, we covered different topics. For Kindergarten through 2nd grade, we focused on summer safety. We watched a presentation on summer safety that included Timon and Pumbaa. We then did a summer safety activity where the students had to determine which person would be appropriate to watch them while they swim. We then had the students create their own playground with given pictures. For 3rd and 4th grade, we talked about summer safety as well as test taking strategies. For 5th grade, we did a 5th grade transition lesson. They watch a video of former 6th grade students and then we had a class discussion about what it would be like in 6th grade.
The last week of May we focused on school memories. We had the students create a memory book of the school year. An example of the memory book is below.
