It was so nice to meet your children this morning. We spent time today getting to know each other, learning classroom procedures and setting up classroom agreements. We will spend a good part of the next couple of weeks with this.
The kids highlight of today was a team building activity where they tried to make towers out of spaghetti sticks. It is called the Marshmallow challenge. You could try it at home to see if you do as well as our students. From this activity they learned that mistakes are good. We also discussed effective team working strategies.
This blog will be regularly updated so that you know what is happening in class. Homework will b communicated through a weekly homework book that goes home on Monday. If you have any questions or concerns please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or come by and see me. The class schedule changes quarterly. The schedule for quarter one is below.
I look forward to a great year with you and your kids.
