We began a witches hat project with the sizes as the way Mrs. Reece and I usually refer to the problem/reaction sizes are in the shape of a triangle where small is on the top (in thirds), medium is in the middle and then of course big is on the bottom in the biggest space. Last year we made candy corn, which most of you may remember. This year we are switching it up. These will be hung on our ceiling. If you will be in the building on Friday, please stop in to see them! This coming week we will be priming the kids for their parade and celebrations in their classrooms. Our classroom will not have a separate celebration but will support students in their general education classrooms.
This week we also had our first "team" meetings. If your child signed up and received a job they attended the first meeting. I trained our recess buddies about what to do, how to interact and work with our kids and shared a photo and a few fun facts about each child. We talked about confidentiality first and foremost so that we all respect each others privacy. There were many students who have been buddies in the past so it will be a great group! We will likely not start this week so that Mrs. Reece and I can pair the students up and send out the information to the kids. You will get a note home with who your child will play with at recess 2 times a week. We will switch kids after usually 6-8 weeks so they can get to know other kids and meet new friends. Please let me know if you have any questions!
Hopefully you all have a conference time. I have most of you on my schedule and so far no one overlaps so that I can attend. I will be floating among 5 general ed teachers so I will do my best to be at your conference for as much of it as possible. Please know that we can always meet an additional time.
Thanks and have a Spooky week!
