Tuesday

Mrs. Joyner has been teaching the children the difference between tattling and reporting. They have been working on being a problem solver and learning different strategies such as walking away, ignoring the person and talking it out when having a problem with another student. Ask your child what the difference is between tattling and reporting and see if they can tell you some of the ways to be a problem solver!

Wednesday

Today was mix it up day at lunch and wacky tacky day! The kids did a great job with their mismatched clothing and had a fun time sitting and talking with different friends at lunch. Another fun activity was to have students pick a word that best describes them. We had children choose such traits as caring, kind, helpful, creative, brave and intelligent to name a few. We then wrote their chosen word on a name tag and enjoyed seeing everyones choice. It was fun to have the whole school participate in these fun community building activities!

Thursday

During math time, we are working on the concept of addition. The students are doing well understanding that when they add, they are combining sets. We are learning different strategies, such as counting on as we practice this. Also we have practiced learning the symbols used ( + and =) when writing and solving addition equations. We will be moving on to subtraction soon!

Friday

We continue to enjoy our wonder lounge time on Fridays. This is a time where we use apps (new and old) on the iPads and iPods. The children are doing very well navigating the devices and taking care of them. They really enjoy the comfortable and fun seating choices. Also we like to use the wonder wall to draw and write on!
