I hope you've had a happy and healthy week! We tried to do that here at school! This week, we spent some time talking about Habit #6--synergizing. We read about the habit and played a game together to learn about the fun we could have when we are working together. Also this week, we have been talking a lot about germs. There are a lot of bugs going around the school and so I thought it would be a perfect time to practice our hand washing and learning about how germs spread. We read Germs Are Not For Sharing and spent time learning how to wash the "fronts, backs and in-betweens" of our hands (shout out to Tracie Schanen OT for that gem!) Then, I used glitter to show the kids how germs spread to things that we touch. Gross! On Thursday, we learned read Feeling Angry and charted what kinds of things make us angry and the bad and good choices we can make in response to those things. Game Day rounded off a great week!
The joke of the week this week is:
"Why do cows go to outer space? To visit the Milky Way!"
