What's going on in Room 125?

Weekly Update: 9-16-15

on September 16, 2015


It’s hard to believe we’re wrapping up our fourth week of school! Here are some notes from the week:

  • We are making our transition from strictly rules, routines, and behavior focus to more academic focus and what is will be our “official” schedule (at least for now!). The amount of time engaged in group work has increased, and for the most part students are doing great with the new challenges! We are still getting our feet under us in many ways; feel free to reach out if you have questions where things stand with your child in this.
  • We started having 2nd graders join our “Friendship Time” for a 15 minute block in the morning. The goals during this time are to increase interaction, communication, and engagement with peers…while having fun of course!
  • We started a Social Studies lesson modeled after first-grade’s lessons and standards. This week we have been talking about rules and responsibilities–particularly how these impact our ability to stay safe and how our actions cause something to happen (cause and effect).
  • I collected Recess Buddy applications this week and hopefully will have Buddies paired up and started in the next week or two. I’ve known this group of 5th graders well since my first year at Edison, and there is a lot of enthusiasm to start the program!
  • Again, there have been and will be several days where I have meetings or give class talks at the end of the day. Thank you for your patience and understanding when this impacts notes and/or my end of the day conversations. Never hesitate to ask questions!

Thank you for continuing to support us all in this first month of school! Have a great end to the week!
