This week, we also began a few projects for after the holidays. On January 16, Lakewood is hosting its first Leadership Day. We are excited for this opportunity and we have been creating projects to decorate the school with student work centered around our theme "Everyday Heroes". We discussed our "super powers"--things we are good at. I would like to take a moment to ask that you help me reinforce that kids do not actually have super powers. I have been referring to super powers are our strengths, but I still have a few children that insist they have real powers. It is important that no one tries to jump off of play structures because they think they can fly, so each time we talk about super heroes, I talk about how much fun it is to pretend they are real but no one has REAL super powers (the ability to fly, walk through walls, etc.). I've mostly been tackling the "powers" that someone could get hurt attempting.
We ended our week with a painting project and game day. We were really busy but we had a good time!
Our joke of the week was:
"Why is it so cold at Christmas?
Because it's Decembrrrrr!"
