WHAT THE ELL?
Simplify your language, not the content.
Speak directly to the student, emphasizing important nouns and verbs.
Avoid using slang and idiomatic expressions. New vocabulary should be presented, discussed and used prior to teaching content.
You can talk until you're blue in the face but they won't make heads or tails of it until you lend them a helping hand.
Something to think about....
“Live so that when your children think of fairness, caring, and integrity, they think of you.” ― J. Jackson Brown, Jr.

Just Because..... You really wanted something else to look at! (over achievers!!!)
Collection for the Sunshine Fund is going on now! Remember, full-timers are asked for $20 and part-timers are asked for $10. Checks may be made out to the Collins Elementary Sunshine Fund. Tracey Elrod in the library or Mary Haarberg in 216A can take your donation. Thanks!
From 1st grade:
food drive begins on November 18 and runs through Dec. 13! Thanks.
From Amanda Sigmon
It has tons of sheets that align with our standards; especially in math.
Dear Collins Staff,
We need your help with our service learning project, actually it is very easy.
We want to include your loved ones and friends who have served or are serving in our nation's armed forces. We will be decorating the Government Center christmas tree and want to honor them by placing their names on our chain that will decorate the Collins tree.
Please send names of your loved ones and friends to me by Friday, November 22nd.
Thank you for your help,
2nd grade team
