Four Days Flew By!

We have had a great start to the new school year!! All of the students are working so hard and I am really proud of their effort. We are learning and practicing the routines in the classroom. We also brainstormed our classroom rules and signed our names to agree to follow them.
I love reading stories and I am so happy that my students love listening to stories too! One of my favorite books is Odd Velvet. After reading, we had a terrific talk about what it means to treat other people and not judge them before truly getting to know them. We also discussed how we are each valuable, special, and unique. We drew pictures and used different adjectives to describe ourselves. Each child did a nice job!
Please look for your child's Backpack Folder today. All of the office documents along with some of our first week's papers can be found inside.
Please return the bright orange blog permission slip by Friday, September 14th.
I look forward to meeting many of you at our Open House in a few weeks. Until then, feel free to enter your email at the right of the blog for updates from our classroom blog sent directly to your email.
Have a great weekend!
Mrs. Farrand :)
