Mrs. McCauley’s first grade class has been working hard the first couple of weeks of school to start the school year off right. After reading the book No David by David Shannon, the students brainstormed appropriate behavior for the hallway and classroom. As a class we collaborated and agreed on a list of rules that all students felt necessary for a successful learning environment. Student then wrote the rules and enjoyed creating a character to resemble themselves. Students were proud to display their characters in the hallway for the other students to see.
Mrs. Eddleblute's Second Grade students have spent the first few weeks of school learning about and practicing how to be responsible and respectful students. They listened to many stories about spreading kindness, including "Have You Filled a Bucket Today?". As a class, they created a chart telling how to be a "bucket filler" not a "bucket dipper". They are off to a great start!
