Animals, Rewards, and 21...OH MY!

Today, we only had 21 students. We missed you Emily! Hope you feel better soon :)
The reason I single Emily out is I wanted to make sure everyone knew why I was only talking about the other 21 students in this post.

Today we got out reward from our compliment jar and had Pet Shop. The students brought in a stuffed animal to leave on their desks. They enjoyed it so much!!

All the students holding their animals with the bottom pictures as the animals on their desks while they were at PE learning about bus procedures (please remember to look over the form and letter I sent home about the bus procedures).

All twenty-one students that were at school today did such an awesome job that all twenty-one students made SUPER STUDENT!!! WOO HOO! I knew at some point all the kids would make super student but I never thought they all would on the same day (I hoped it would happen though)!! I am so proud of our class! We also have 19 pom poms ALREADY in our compliment jar and it is only the 8th day of school (these come from other teachers/staff at NMBP). Thank you so much for your support at home. The kids are doing a great job :)

Everyone went to super student! Keep up the great work of being ready, responsible and respectful!

Super Students

I wanted to recognize the super students. They have gotten notes sent home for you to see if they made it to the top as well as a treasure box trip. These guys have been doing such a great job!! Almost half the class has made it to super student and I am hoping by Friday, they will all make it to that level. Its my goal and theirs to see everyone show the extra effort :)

Below are the super students to date as well as our Musician of the week and artist of the week...

 We have had so many get to blue (way to go!) and thats so close! Remember tomorrow we are doing our reward from our compliment jar. The class chose pet shop!!

Love it!

The kids made these great books last week for their first week in first grade. They went home in folders on Friday but I wanted to share a few of the pages from their view of the week :)

Happy Thursday! We have been working on procedures this week in our room. Its always fun the first week getting to know each other through activities and group time. I am amazed at how fast the kids have learned each others name. We already have a bunch of friends :) Your kids are a great group! It has been so much fun greeting to know each of them. Enjoy a few pictures.

This is in the morning. The kids sit in the hall to read books until about 7:20.

This is a station the kids worked at during workstations. They practiced sorting the colored monkeys and matching them to the word. This is one of the groups.

Stay tuned for more pictures next week...

First day

We had such a great day today in room 612! Our class has already started working on our community of learners/friends. I got a picture of each child today with their "I'm a First grader" sign. I will upload 6-9 pictures per day of each of the students. Enjoy! I have a class picture we took today but I am waiting to post until I have all the forms of permission back :)

After you enjoy the pictures, please comment below and let me know your child's favorite part of today!
