Our April life skill was responsibility. Responsibility is an important life skill because it covers so many aspects of life- from responsible decision making, to being responsible for our belongings, words, and actions to being responsible for our Earth. In kindergarten through second grade we read What If Everybody Did That? While reading, we discussed how our actions- big or small- can have a major impact, either for the good when make responsible decisions or for the bad when we act irresponsibly. After reading the book, we played a game to act out, ask questions and brainstorm ways of showing responsibility.
As a reminder, the 2018-2019 Class Placement Parent Input Form is currently available for you to provide input about your child’s personality and learning style for next year. Our intent is for each student to be set up for success academically, emotionally, and socially. Please refrain from making specific friend and/or teacher requests, as they will NOT be honored. This form is completely optional and certainly not necessary. However, it is an opportunity for parents to provide input on the best learning environment for their child if they feel inclined. All parent input is due Friday, May 11, 2018.
