Back to School!
We've had a great first week together! We enjoyed reading and singing about Pete the Cat, practiced our scissor skills to make Pete the Cat puppets, began celebrating 1 student each day as we began our name cycle (watch for your student to bring home a special book of drawings on their special day!), and read our 1st easy reader book to put in our book boxes. We also discussed numbers 0-5 and worked on classroom routines. We are learning to raise our hands before we speak or leave our seat, use our signals (sign language letters) to request water, tissue, or a visit to the restroom, and how to play safely at recess. Students have been doing a wonderful job!! They are trying their very best, reminding their classmates if they forget, and are truly caring about their new friends. Mrs. Best and I are excited for the year ahead of us with our eager little learners!!
