What's going on in Room 125?

Weekly Update: 3-6-14

Hello families!

A few things to share this week:

  1. Please notice the new notes pages in your child’s binder. The daily sign in will be on the front, and notes from me on the back. I know the notes from me has varied slightly for those who have yes/no charts, but I am going to make an effort to do quick notes home again on these pages. Please let me know what you think. I want to be sure your child’s page includes information that’s relevant to them and to you. Nothing is permanent!
  2. You are likely familiar with Edison Earnings at our school. We have not been as consistent with these in our classroom since each student has such individualized behavior charts/rewards. Starting this week, I am making an effort to implement the Earnings with the target of “nice words and actions.” Basically, I will award one when someone goes above and beyond with nice words and actions (this will, of course, look different for each student). Our school has started classroom prize boxes, so each time an earning is awarded, students will go home with a mini prize (e.g. eraser, bracelet, pencil, etc). I’ll try to note when this happens, but if you see a little prize like that, know that your child really went above and beyond with those nice actions!
  3. Finally we are implementing the inclusion t-shirt project with our funds from Touch the World! The t-shirts are in and at tomorrow’s First Friday assembly we will be awarding the first batch to students that we’ve noticed have gone above and beyond in being good friends to the students in this class. I am excited to recognize those who have done such a great job and to see much of our school displaying our shirts!
  4. As you know, we often find ourselves in the position of being short a para. A couple of times this week we have been lucky to have a sub, Ms Phyllis. I tried to introduce you, but I just wanted to be sure you know who that is. She has been in our classroom several times and is aware of our routines, expectations, and individual student needs.  So when you see her, know that she’s somewhat “a regular.” J
  5. Report cards and IEP progress reports are going home today! Let me know if you have any questions about them.


Enjoy this weather!
