Our super cute Valentine's Day project! The children were hesitant because it was hard to understand how making dots on a paper could turn into a cool finished product, but they stuck with it--and the results were great!
We spent the week talking about kindness, making appreciation cards for our bus drivers and talking about friendship. The children enjoyed a game day this week, the 4th and 5th graders read about friendship and the 3rd graders got a head start on our new Unthinkable, Mean Jean! Next week, we will be talking about Mean Jean and the difference between being unkind, being rude and being a bully. Stay tuned for that tricky conversation and a graphic to help kids sort that out and reinforce it at home.
The joke this week was: "What do you call two birds in love? Tweethearts!"
Our word of the week was "outraged". The children wrote it in their Social Skills Notebooks under "mad"
Have a great weekend and enjoy a few days off!
