Weekly Updates


This week in SEL, we will work on Random Acts of Kindness!  We will be discussing different ways we can do things for others to put a smile on their face!  We will also discuss the domino effect of having positive behavior.  Finally, we will talk about how we cannot always do things perfectly or focus on the positive but that is okay and mistakes help us learn!  We are all HUMAN! 

Below are some resources for home that you can look at with your kiddo or that your kiddo can explore on their own :)  All are OPTIONAL!

 We are working on Level 2 of Observational Comment Writing.  We will be in week in our third and final week this week. Below is an example of our writing last week. This week will be the same process just a different topic! 

Day One:

We write as a group!  First we make our circle map, transfer that to a tree map and then tap our our sentences.  This week we are adding more to each connecting word and we are also using the word and to make combined sentences. 

Day Two:

We regroup and I display the completed tree map and the kiddos write the sentences independently.  We take time to make sure that each sentence has our topic and our connecting words as well as the word and to combine ideas. 

Day Three:

We are independent writers!  I display the circle map.  They kiddos use a blank tree map to transfer the information and then tap out and write their sentences!

Please start to work with your kiddos on fact family quick recall!  Give them two numbers to add and then have them do the flip flop, and then the subtraction problems for it.
