Return from break was filled with a variety of emotions! Some kids were sad to have break end while others were excited to be back. I hope you all had an enjoyable, restful break. I unfortunately lost my voice and was sick Friday so the kids had some game days in the mix. In the beginning of the week the kids filled out or talked about their breaks. Kindergarten kids now have their own social group! It was great to begin discussing rules and show them our reward/money system. The older kids worked on eye contact for the Hidden Curriculum (video shown under resources). We tied this in with having body and eyes in the group since Social Detective tells us your eyes tell your brain what you do/think about. I was proud overall to watch them get back into the swing of things. We are really looking at any behavior regression or slide from break and they all did wonderfully! Don't forget our book fair is going on right now!
