A celebration of our compliments was a huge success! 1-L students earn stars on our chart during work time. Students earn stars when they try their best, stay focused, and work hard. Specifically we have been working on stop, look, and listen with empty hands when the teacher gives directions. Students have been working cooperatively and we had the best time celebrating.
We started the day with a stuffed animal show and tell. Then we taught our stuffed animals the classroom rules as they may be different from home :) Next we took our stuffed animals to reading workshop. Here students read their books to their stuffed animals. It was really the cutest thing I have seen in a while! Profe also let the students bring their stuffed animals to Spanish and the stuffed animals learned a little Spanish. Ask your child what they taught their stuffed animal.
In the afternoon we all changed into our p.j.'s and snuggled up on the rug to watch The Magic School Bus Spins a Web. It was a really fun celebration and the kids were so happy to have this special day in class.
