Lifelines of the Month

LIFELINES are the character traits that are taught at school so that everyone is using the same vocabulary. They may be taught in a different order at the buildings, but these have been introduced or reflected on this month at EPS & EIS:


Friendship - to make and keep a friend through mutual trust and caring


Self-Control - control exercised over one's self

Be sure to discuss these at home and integrate them into your at-home language - you'll be impressed at how quickly they remember the definitions and follow through!

Teacher Tips!

K-3

  • While grocery shopping with your child you can practice phonemic awareness. As you put items in your grocery cart, say a rhyming word for each product. The rhymes do not have to be real words such as 'chips' & 'dips'. They can be nonsense words such as 'chips' & 'mips'. Invite your child to think of other rhymes.


K-5

  • Read books, poems, or tongue twisters that have “alliteration” (repeated consonant sounds) like “Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers.” This is a great way to emphasize the initial sound. Ask the Ellettsville librarian for books like this. If you call ahead, she will leave them at the front desk for you.


K-12

  • Post a family message center in your kitchen or family room. Write a message to your children. Occasionally, pin-up cartoons and short articles from magazines or the newspaper. Encourage your children to leave messages for other family members. This is a fun way to encourage writing.
