The kindergarten kids had a snowman Friday where they did some activities with writing, a snowman project or two, and math. We measured how tall our snowmen were and used description words to list what "my snowman has". We worked on a Snowy Day retell page and read books about snow and snowmen. I will be doing some reading testing next week. I will not be at school on Thursday, so please contact the office if you need to leave me a message (or send an email if it isn't urgent).
We have had a lot of germs spreading around. If your child does not feel well I encourage you to let them rest and feel better before attending school again. Our students tend to not know how to cover their mouths when they sneeze or cough. They typically do not blow their own noses well or at all. This means they spread germs to surfaces all throughout the school and to or on each other. I understand part of this is just common in the early years, but I have to say that when other kids get sick and staff gets sick sometimes it could have been prevented. When staff is sick and take time off the component of a sub is a disruption to all the kids we support. This is unavoidable, such as when I have meetings, training I'm required to attend, or am sick myself. I'd just prefer to keep it to a minimum if possible. I know schools request a lot from parents, but the health of all my kiddos is important to me. Thanks for understanding. :)
