We are off a great start. The students were very excited to be back at school. This week, we spent time getting to know each other, reviewed our classroom rules, and learned how to earn (or lose) Pike dollars.
In class this first week, we read the story Chrysanthemum. In this book, a little mouse is given a very long name that her parents think is just perfect for her. Unfortunately when she goes to school, she is teased by the other students. As a class, we discussed how teasing hurts others and ways we can resolve being teased.
As part of this lesson, we will be studying your child's unique name. Please help your child answer the following questions.
1. Does my name have a meaning? What does it mean?
2. Who chose my name?
3. Why was this name chosen?
4. Why is this name perfect for me?
Beginning next week, I will be assessing each student in both language arts and math. The results will be sent home in the upcoming weeks.
I look forward to meeting everyone at our Back-to-School Night on Thursday from 6:30-7:30pm.
First Day of School Meet in the classroom at 7:40am
