The SCOOP – March 23 – 27

Welcome to this week’s version of The SCOOP. You can read about updates on events from the past week and events that are coming up.

Spring Celebration!

What a great day! There was much excitement about the celebration and the upcoming vacation so the energy was high! We started with a book about the life cycle of a sunflower. Then the students performed their song and finally we went into our rotation celebration. Students rotated through making a grape caterpillar, to planting their own sunflower seeds, to creating a craft with the labels of a plant! A great thanks for Megan and Soya for planning the whole event! Another thanks to all the parents who came to participate and especially to those who took time off work to come by and stay for the fun!

Here Comes the Sun

Are those kiddos awesome or what! The amazing thing is that they learned that song in 3 days. Our Blue group created the motions/choreography one afternoon and they all learned it the next day! Seriously amazing kids! I have to admit I got a little teary the first time they sang it…something so beautiful about those voices singing a Beatles song about spring! Give another round of applause for the singers of 206!

PS…Many of the students told me they were going to have their parents download the song for them! They love that song! If someone got some video footage, we might be able to get it uploaded to YouTube or Shutterfly!

Kindergarten Science Night

Not sure if you got to drop by Kindergarten Science Night….it was awesome! There were 6 stations of experiments for the kids to rotate through. I saw many familiar faces and tried to catch all the 206 families, but found out the next day I missed a few! I brought my own sweet Lucy with me to check out the learning fun! (sorry) Check out some pics to see what this night was all about!

Our New 206 Technology!

Thursday after school the IT elves came in and tore our room apart to install our Promethean board and all the equipment that comes with it! We have been waiting a long while for this surprise! As our class was missing this piece of technology (with limitless possibilities), Mr. Morici went to bat to ensure we could get this technology in our room! (Thank you Mr. Morici!) This process has taken months from getting approved, to the delivery of equipment, to wiring, and finally to the installation on Thursday night! We are very grateful! This created a whole new level of added energy on Friday at the celebration! 😉

Fire Drill

They are getting it! Friday we had another fire drill and the students have greatly improved! They are working to staying focused on the line and staying safe as it is so easy to get distracted with all the commotion of the other classes all going out at the same time. Over the months and many talks, they are getting much better at staying focused in order to stay safe!

Jog-A-Thon Results!!!

The ribbons finally came it along with the official results. 3 Students in our class were awarded a Kindergarten 2nd place for running over 14 laps that day! We had an additional 11 students who place 3rd in Kindergarten for running over 10 laps that day! Awesome effort! I have to say in general that day was so fun and well organized despite the heat that day! We ALL had a great day and got some good exercise along with lots of laughs and smiles! Applause to all of our 206 runners!

Fine Artists

Tuesday this past week, our little Artists were able to create a piece of art that reflected the work of Kathleen Wade. The students worked to show movement in their piece of art! This was our final Fine Artist lesson for this year.

We are so grateful for our Fine Artist Volunteers (Jan Ash, Angela Weathers, and Jennifer York) for their time and dedication to attend art training sessions and to then take time to prep the lesson for the kids and teach it to the class! Thank you ladies! It was an awesome year!

St. Pat’s Day – (and the Leprechaun Surprise)

This St. Patrick’s Day we celebrated by reading a St. Patrick’s Day story, making a St. Patrick’s Day Craft (see “6 Wishes” below), and having a rainbow of a snack (Skittles)! We also made sure to capture a “green” class photo before our day ended!

The student’s were completely shocked and surprised as many leprechauns make a mess in rooms, but our little leprechaun made a different kind of mess. He left green in our toilet! Many giggles and gasps were made by this sight!

(Thanks to Megan Brenk for her help in making this all happen!)

Jog-A-Thon Envelopes

Jog-A-Thon envelopes went home this past week as they are collecting all the donations and pledges that were made. These went home in student envelopes Wednesday and Thursday and were due on Friday. We are waiting for student award ribbons to come in to share with Grade Level winners (for running the most laps). We were told the ribbons should arrive by the end of the week so we may be able to announce this week or just after the spring break week.

 Kindergarten Science Night

This next Thursday (March 26th) at 6:30 pm, you and your student are invited to attend the Kindergarten Family Science Night. Each grade level at our school has a Science night and this month it’s our turn. Unfortunately, siblings are not able to attend this event. Flyers (like the photo below) went home in folders this past week with the information.

Mission To Save Banking Volunteers

We have been so fortunate to have been chosen by Mission Federal Credit Union this year to earn money back for our students by opening savings account and accumulating interest on it. The program is in need of some EBS representatives who can help on Thursdays mornings before school to collect deposits, etc. If you think you would be able to help out see the front office to help!

Math Challenge (number sets differentiation)

Each week during our Sticker Problem time, we get in partners (called Perimeter Partnerships as we sit in the perimeter around the rug) and read through our problem. Students then go out, solve the problem with another partner (Work-It-Out partners) and then come back to share their thinking with their original perimeter partner. When students are working with their perimeter partnerships, they solve the problem in two ways using the tools we have practiced and come to know well (see the poster below). If they finish solving in 2 ways, partners can go on to the Super problem, which is the same problem with a second set of numbers. If students can solve the Super Problem in 2 different ways, they go on to the Super Duper Problem which is the same problem with a third set of numbers. This allows students to spend time on the first problem as long as needed. This also allows for students who are able to be challenged with more difficult numbers to practice a second and third time. See an example below….the number sets are listed in parenthesis.

Partnerships

We’ve spent a lot of time working on improving our collaborative conversations. These conversations happen in whole group, small group, and in partnerships. We have spent a lot of time discussing what partnerships “look like” and “sound like.” See our co-created chart to see what we practice as part of our partnership expectations.

No Library Check-Out this Week

The SCOOP – March 9 – 13

Welcome to this week’s version of The SCOOP. You can read about updates on events from the past week and events that are coming up.

Character Ed. – Compassion

This week Jan Ash, a beloved 206 grandma, came in to teach our Character Education lesson. This month the concept was COMPASSION! It couldn’t have been a better lesson. Ms. Jan came in to read the students a book that gave a great example of compassion. She then spoke with the kids about compassion and they discussed some different examples of compassion. Then, the students went to their seats to draw a picture and wrote about different ways they can be compassionate. Here are just a few of the quotes that our students came up! It was so impressive to see the variety of ideas that each little mind thought up! Your children are wonderful!

  • “I show compassion by helping others when they get hurt.”
  • “I show compassion by making a valentine and card and then giving them a hug.”
  • “Take care of my baby sister especially if she is feeling left out.”
  • “When my grandma is in the hospital I take care of her.”
  • “I don’t like wasting water in the sink. (showing compassion by saving water.)”
  • “Help to pick up my room so my mom can see the floor.”
  • “If they lose their dog, I can help bring it back to them.”

Here are pics of the lessons and some student samples. Enjoy!

Bucket Filling or Bucket Dipping?

This week we read a favorite book of mine. There are a few different versions of this book (you may have read one), and they are all great. It is the greatest conversation and thought to have with kids. The concept of this book is that everyone has a bucket. When you compliment, love, hug, smile, etc you fill up someone’s bucket and in turn, add to your own bucket. When you gripe, fight, put-down, bully, speak with anger or frustration, etc, you dip into and take out of other’s buckets. The book goes on to explain, how many people we encounter that are mean or grumpy or unkind typically have an empty bucket. AND…the best way to help those people is to help fill their bucket! Filling a bucket is a two-fold reward — when you fill someone else’s bucket, your own bucket is filled as well! We as humans were designed to fill! With that said, I gave them each a task this past Friday…fill a bucket a recess today and fill a bucket at home this weekend! …ready, set, fill-a-way!

Reading Daily – Reading Logs (a true Kinder Garden)

As student Reading Logs do serve as “homework” for this Kindergarten/TK year, it is important to remember the purpose isn’t to have every sticker filled on the class chart, but rather to create a habit for reading regularly and making it a part of daily and future life. Read to your child, listen to your child read to you, read side-by-side with your child (each having your own reading material in hand). It is the consistency that we aim for and is what will show the most growth with your child. All of these attributes have been proven to make your child more successful in school and in literacy!  I try to encourage them to “RAZ” their weekends and use their book borrows throughout their week. Use the log as a way for your child to practice accountability in their efforts.

Believe me I know we all lead busy lives (my own little kiddos make life so much more fulfilling and wonderful, but at  the end of our days and week we are flat-out exhausted) and there is so little time, but this diligence will pay off!

One of our TKers read 7 days this past week. We made a big deal out of this in class as we saw this student’s log started on Friday night last week! This is not uncommon for this student! You may have noticed your child’s reading taking off as we are just getting to spring! This is fantastic and one of the best things about teaching TK/K…a growing reader sprouting like weeds! Support and praise effort and diligence of your little reader and watch your Kinder Garden grow!

Comments??? – the comment section is a great way for you and I to be in touch specifically about what you are seeing at home during your child’s independent reading practice. Please take advantage of this section. Share the concerns, successes and questions! I often write comments or questions back to you.

Last Call to be Cleared – March 27th

Just a reminder if you aren’t cleared, the EBS Nurse office will be clearing through March for the 14-15 school year. The cleared status lasts 3-4 years so you will get your use out of this. If you have contemplated (even just to join us at the end of the year, father’s day, a field trip, or even a impromptu visit/support to make your child’s day) GET cleared! Its a simple TB test and some paperwork and is well worth it. If you aren’t cleared by March, you’ll need to wait until next Fall. (You know your thinking about…just do it!)

Monday – 3/16

  • PE with Mrs. Blower…wear Tennis Shoes! (this is required to participate and receive an accurate grade from Coach Blower)
  • Renew Book Borrow Bags (return the bags to receive new books)

Tuesday – 3/17

206 Family Picture Day!…Say Cheese

Monday (March 9th) we will be taking a class picture! So far, we haven’t been able to grab a photo on a day when everyone is present. Monday is our last chance to get one in time to get it in the yearbook! If possible, make sure you are at school on time Monday as we plan to take a 206 picture! Wear your EBS Spirit wear and your biggest smiles! 

Jog-A-Thon

What a day we had on Friday! It was beautiful, sunny and perfect! The kids were overly enthusiastic about the day (I guess I was too ;)! We had so many parents out there to cheer on, pass out food and water, and even some to squirt (or some might call it soak) myself and all the kids as ran by! We all had so much fun! Thank you for all your donations, time and support and for our class rep. – Alice Sestok for taking the lead on 206’s Jog-A-Thon 2015!

If your child couldn’t stop talking about it, give the morning Run Club a try! Some of our classmates go out regularly at 8:15 am and collect laps as they run! Check out some of the pics from our day! (if you have any that I missed feel free to add your pics up to the Shutterfly Site).

Dr. Seuss Day

Monday, March 2nd we celebrated the birth of Ted Geisel aka Dr. Seuss. We wore our pajamas and made Cat In The Hat hats an and read books to celebrate Read Across America Day. Just before lunch, our loved ones came in to read with us and to us. Thank you for all who came in to join the celebration!

Buddy Pictures

Some of you may have heard the announcement on the intercom Thursday or may have seen the Shutterfly announcement regarding Buddy Pictures. After researching a bit, I found out this is an opportunity where your child can take a picture with a special buddy or friend they found this year (or a friendship made prior to this year). If your child wants to take a Buddy picture, they are being offered for one more Thursday (March 12th) at 12:30 on the Upper Playground. Pictures are $1.00 per picture, per child. This is headed up with Nancy Ferriera (nancyebs2014@gmail.com). She is looking for parent helpers to pass out tickets, collect money and help organize if you’re interested or able.

New Whiteboard Outside

206 has a new whiteboard outside (by our backpack hooks and lunch/snack tubs that will take the place of the standing board that used to be outside the classroom door in the hallway. This is a new notification board where we can post upcoming information, sign-ups, etc. Check it out!

Writing Sight Words

Many of our 206 students now have a plethora of Sight Words under their belt! They can read them like champs, but writing these words create a different struggle. If your 206 kid is a Sight Word Master, try having them write these words a new way of practice. Remind them to picture their word in their mind as they write as it should with automaticity, as most of these words can’t and should be “sound it out.”

206 Cute Quote

Here’s a little something I caught one of our little cuties saying this week. This student was putting his crayons away as he was finishing up his independent writing and his crayons fell out of the crayon box. Here’s his response to his crayons when no one was paying attention.

“Are you serious crayons, youre driving me crazy!”

– An Adorable 206 Student!

He previously got an award for making it to 100 laps and now he has run 200 laps!  We couldn’t be more proud of him! His stamina is growing and he’s building habits for a healthy lifestyle! His name was announced during the all school Friday morning announcements on the intercom! Congratulations!

Jog-A-Thon (Friday, March 6th)

Our annual Jog-A-Thon is coming up very soon! Next Friday…will be our school Jog-A-Thon. Alice Sestok is our class coordinator. In attending the meetings, she was told we would need some class donations and classrooms volunteers. This is a minimum day that is divided in half. The upper grades run the first half of the day and the primary classes run the second half of the day. They need volunteers to help cover the whole day as its a “whole village” event. Students will be running laps and will carry cards with bar codes on them. Each time they run past they get scanned to count their number of laps.

As for donations here is a list of items that are needed for Friday, March 6th.

  • 2-4 cases of bottled water (miniature size)
  • Bags of peeled cuties (brought the day of)
  • Sliced watermelons
  • Bags of Ice
  • A water cooler (with wheels)
  • 1-2 Pop-up tents
  • Squirt Guns (ideally with adult volunteers attached to them)

I’m hoping I get to run with the kids too! It sounds like is a huge and excitingly fun event! We hope you can come on out to be a part of this fun and memorable day! If you are willing to help out in one or more ways listed above, add your name to the sign up sheet at the 206 door on Monday and/or speak with Alice Sestok (alicesestok@hotmail.com) if you have any questions! Thanks!

First timer at EBS Jog-A-Thon??? Get a quick view at what it might look like on the map/layout.

Mathematical Car Rides

The time in our car can be used to bond with our kiddos and to practice in some areas that at home could feel tedious. If you have a 10 -30 minute car ride, practice a few games that work on these math skills (taken from Kindergarten math standards).

  • Counting to 100 by ones and 10’s (reminder 10’s can start anywhere 16, 26, 36, 46…)
  • Writing numbers from 0 – 20 (notebook stored in the car, check when you get to your destination or have them practice writing a random number such as “36).
  • Counting forward from a given number other than 1 (ie. give 36 and have your student count on from 36).
  • One more – give a number, have your student tell what is one more or one less than that number.

Click here to see more at Kindergarten Counting and Cardinality Math Standards

RAZ Kids

Don’t forget about RAZ kids!!! The kids got real excited for awhile and a lot of reading in for a few weeks. It has died down. We have 4-6 faithful and consistent students that put in their time and it has paid off for them in their reading growth! Try to have your child spend 15 minutes 4-5 times a week reading their RAZ kids books! They are fiction and non-fiction. Their level at the end of the year will be able to continue on in first grade!
