We ended our week with a little inspirational and practical activity that helped the children think about their choices.
The kids did a great job of thinking of kind, creative, and helpful ways to use their hands!
Our first brown bag lunch will be January 31st from 10:40-11:25! Please bring lunch and come eat with your child in our classroom. Your child will have a chance to show you what they have been up to at school!
The kids brainstormed ideas of problems they could solve and inventions they could make using pipe cleaners, a cup, and a plate along with scissors and glue. The kids had to invent something new, not something that had already been invented.
Ask your child what they invented today!
Thank you so much to everyone for my group gift of fun gift cards! I will enjoy choosing special things to spend them on. I truly appreciate your kindness and generosity! Many of you also gave me a personal gift which was also so kind and wonderful!
It is my privilege to work with your child each day. But it is also so amazing to work with such kind and appreciative parents.
Thank you for making me feel special and thank you for helping our school family be such a great one! Insert some smiley and hearted eyed emojis here! Thank you again!
We had a fun and magical winter party! So many parents donated their time, supplies, and money to make this day special. Our room parents Angie and Kelli, pulled together everything into a snowman themed winter wonderland!
The kids got crafts to take home! A build a snowman kit and a snowman soup mix! Yum!
What a wonderful celebration! Thank you families for making our winter party so fun!!!!
As you may have read in the parent email from Mr. Woods, our custodian, Mr. Bill passed away on Sunday.
Today I shared this news with the class. We discussed our Mr. Bill’s body stopped working. We discussed how something made his body sick and it stopped working but we don’t know what it was. I didn’t tell the kids specifically he died in his sleep because I thought they would find that especially terrifying.
We talked about our feelings and that all feelings are ok. I encouraged the students to talk with you at home about their feelings.
We ended our discussion by drawing. The kids had the choice to draw about their feelings, make a card for Mr. Bill’s family or just draw. We listened to peaceful music and just took a quiet moment to process.
With a long break from school coming up I thought I would share this article about some simple ways to help your child make their own fun. I especially liked the idea of laying out a little station open ended materials for your child to find and enjoy. Here is the link If you would like to read the article.
