-We had a great first week of kindergarten. The kids are getting to know each other and school routines. I am sure they come home exhausted! Here are a few updates...
Adorable story...I told the kids,"We have a dilemma. I don't like rules." I had 17 little faces looking at me with shock and utter confusion. I told them that rules say all the things you can't do, and that our classroom family needs to create important things that help our days run smoothly. However, we must agree that they are important and that we will follow them. The kids created Essential Agreements...BE SAFE. BE READY. BE KIND. We refer to them many times to guide our behavior and our decisions.
-Kindergarten has a new policy of no birthday treats, so our class will sing Happy Birthday and give the student a birthday crown to wear.
-Monday we will begin our phonics program, Fundations.
-The kids tell me when they teach you something we've learned in class. Thank you for letting them be your teacher. It fills them with pride!
