We started talking about leaders today. Over the next two weeks, we will talk about different leaders in our country, past and present. We will talk about the job of the president and what good leaders do and how they act.
We practiced writing numerals in math. We practiced the stick numerals, (1, 4 and 7) first, then practiced 2. We will begin working on writing the numbers to 20. Children who show they can do this consistently without reversals will move on to higher numbers.
We had a visit from Mrs. Kanter today. She talked about using strategies when someone is annoying you. We use DeBug at Bells Mill. Your child should have a packet in their folder from Mrs. Kanter that tell you about the strategies used in DeBug. Ask me to tell you about DeBug.
DeBug is to be used for kid-size problems. Bigger problems, such as hitting or saying very mean things require adult help immediately. The children will learn to use the DeBug strategies and will be encouraged to use them before coming to an adult for help. We will continue to talk about DeBug so students understand what they can do and how it can help at school and at home!
Have a nice evening!
