Today we went browsing at the Book Fair. Your children will be coming home with a wish list and the flyer for the Book Fair that advertises some of the books that are at the Book Fair. But there are many more to choose from than are in the flyer. The Book Fair is open tonight from 6:30 - 8:30. The Book Fair will be open tomorrow during the school day, and Thursday until 1:00.
We are really working on being more responsible with classroom materials. We seem to have a lot of literacy station and math station activities left out. We have also had children destroying some of the materials or mixing up sets of cards so they could have more. We had all of our name cards in writing station drawn on with markers to add moustaches, beards, glasses, etc. We have talked about how putting things away is part of being responsible. We will be talking about the Bells Mill Six Star Expectations over the next couple weeks and will use that language of being a good citizen, being fair, etc. to talk about appropriate behavior. Tomorrow we will be having a class meeting to focus on the problem and solutions for how we can do better in being responsible with classroom materials.
It was great to see so many families come to our Open House on Monday. The kids were really excited to see you at school and show you what we do in our classroom each day.
Have a nice evening!
