The SCOOP – May 25 – 29

The last 11 days! PLEASE, PLEASE tell your 206 friends to read the SCOOP as they will miss important end of the year info!

Summer Birthday Celebration

This week we are celebrating the July Birthdays this week Tuesday and the August birthdays next Tuesday. Say happy birthday to our Summer Friends! Thank you Alice Sestok for coordinating!

End of Year Grade Level Celebration

The Grade Level End of the Year Celebration will take place on Thursday, June 11, 2015. A yellow sheet went home on Friday with all the information regarding the day. The event will take the majority of the day. Students typically come dressed in swim wear (see our Kindergarten Spirit Week Modifications below) under their clothes and dressed prepared to get wet. Please make sure they are wearing water sandals (Crocs are also allowed), but no Flip Flops. Please sign up and return the money for the day by this Friday, June 5, 2015.

There is a sign-up sheet on the whiteboard near our backpack hooks to help us out for the day (a photo of the sign up is pictured below).

 206 Celebration

Our own classroom will be having a small goodbye party on Wednesday, June 10th at 11:45 pm – 12:30. We will be watching the 2015 classroom video made by Alice Sestok and listening to our beautiful 206 voices and smiles (they have been practicing) as they sing for you. Afterwards we will be heading outside to enjoy some Otter Pops out on the playground. Thank you Megan Brenk and Soya Lee for putting this time together so we can say our goodbyes! Everyone is welcome to come as long as you are cleared!

This has been an amazing year and I can’t believe its ending so fast! Click below to see the flyer that will go home regarding the celebration!

YearBook – Last Chance! Don’t Miss Out!

I just ordered mine yesterday (I’m a big yearbook fan as I have a full collection dating back to my own kindergarten year!). Don’t regret missing out on your copy! Sales are open until Monday, June 1st! They are $25.00 with a $1.00 processing fee! I’m hoping to give the students a chance to sign year books one day during the last week, depending when the year books are delivered.

4th of July Parade

“Oh Say Can You See,…..” any 206 families at the annual 4th of July Scripps Ranch Parade! We are hoping you can make it to represent EBS during the 4th of July Parade. You only need to wear a Red Shirt and return the slip to let the school know you’ll be walking with your family/child. The route is about 1 mile long. See more info. below….

Emergency Disaster Drill

This week (Wednesday) we had a Disaster Drill. We spoke about the purpose of the drill and how it differs from a fire drill. The kids did great. They really improved on the walking part. This has been a struggle all year. Typically when we are walking out to our safe area, the kids are so distracted watching other lines walk out to their safe area, the miss the line moving and endanger getting themself and the rest of the line behind them lost or delayed from the rest of the line.

During a disaster drill Ms. Sloan gets on the intercom to tell the kids that the pretend shaking is taking place. At this time, the students are to crawl under a desk and protect their heads, necks and eyes first and foremost (we have practiced this). After the pretend shaking has stopped for 2 minutes, the students all walk out as they get in a line and we walk out to our safe spot. At the time, teacher teams go through all the classrooms to search and rescue any hurt students/staff. The students had to wait for a little bit and they did fantastic. Applaud your student as they were all calm, brave, and helped to keep us all safe!

Western BBQ Lunch – Wed 6/3

Flyers went home this week if you wanted to join the lunch with your student. The deadline has passed for sign ups, but if you already returned your slip to join your student, just come to join your student on June 3rd up at the lunch area that day at our regular lunch time (1:05 pm).

Library for the 2014-15 Year has ENDED

We will not be returning to the library for the rest of this school year. Our last visit is Wednesday. Thank you for returning your library books and we look forward to another year of checking out books next year! Ms. Tremblay was a warm and friendly librarian we were so fortunate to work with this year! TK dismissal will return to 12:30 on Wednesdays. Ms. Tremblay reading to 206!

Trader Joe Bags

I am planning to send home some of your students materials during the last few days of school. I’m trying to collect a bag for each student. I have a few already, but if you happen to have any extra brown paper bags from Trader Joes send them over as I will create a bag for each student to separate their work and materials. Thank you!

Book Borrows Ending – Reading

This will be the last week that we check out books for Book Borrow. Please take advantage of the time and reading. Over the summer, PLEASE hold your child accountable to reading over the summer. This helps to keep the reading part of their brain in the game and keeps them from sliding back levels over the summer. Please return all bags/books by Monday, June 8th.

Spirit Week – MODIFIED for Kindergarten

Due to our End of the Year Celebration for Kindergarten, we have modified the days for Spirit Week so that we don’t wear PJ’s out the field for our JW Tumbles event.

  • Monday, June 8th – Crazy Hair Day
  • Tuesday, June 9th – Sports Day
  • Wednesday, June 10th – PJ Day (No Slippers)
  • Thursday, June 11th – Beach Day (Swim Wear underneath, No Flip Flops)
  • Friday, June 12th – EBS Spirit Day (Wear your EBS Shirts or School Colors)

How Lucky Am I???

Seriously, I feel so lucky…What other job delivers love notes, hugs, and flowers almost on a daily basis! I have a collection of students notes, pictures, and writings that are hanging above our classroom sink! This job is challenging and pushes me to do my best and yet it has to be one of the most rewarding careers ever! I feel so honored to have worked with your students this year! You have some love bugs on your hands!

This is a note that appeared on my desk one morning cheering me on! The flowers were handed to me by another two students with the words, “because you are so sweet Mrs. Miller.” These kids spoil us with love!

 Student Writing

Recently, students have been writing books as another choice of writing. Here are two book samples from 206 Students. One is a life cycle of a butterfly and the other is all about Teachers!  Read the captions below each picture for translation help if needed.

The SCOOP – May 18 – 22

Only 15 days left!!! It’s going too fast!!! Share with a friend!

Awesome Field Trip

This past week we were able to go to the San Diego Zoo! Thank goodness to the 14 volunteers that came to help! Though it was an awesome day it is a very busy and public place. We were able to go on a tour bus through many of the animals. We got to learn some new information and go into the entrance of the Elephant Building which leads into the zookeepers washing area. When we exited the bus tour we sat down and ate lunch and then headed off for a couple of hours to tour the park in small groups. It was perfect weather and we made it home all in one piece! Thank  you again to all the parent chaperones! Seriously…There’s no way this one could have been pulled off without you!

End of the Year Party – SAVE THE DATE

Families – we will be having a Kindergarten End of the Year Party with all the Kindergarten/TK classes. This outdoor event will take place on Thursday, June 11th and will take most of our day. Keep your eyes out for more information regarding the details on food and entertainment.

Character Ed Assembly

This week we had a Character Ed. Assembly that was given by Family Karate. Take a look at the flyer that went home and ask your child to show you some of the positions they learned at the assembly!

RAZ Kids for Summer

Don’t stop READING! For some readers, they can slip back in reading levels, if they are regularly reading. It is very important that you keep up the routine of reading 5-7 days a week. We are so fortunate to have such an amazing school that funds RAZ kids. Your student’s RAZ kids account will remain active during the summer. Take advantage of this by having a set time for your child to read for a set amount of time daily (first thing in the morning, just before dinner, just after lunch, etc).

Take weekly trips to the library. This is a favorite time that my daughter (my son is still in training) and I enjoy. She begs me to take her to pick out new books and we take time to read a few and take home a few! This is another way to keep the reading high. BONUS: Check out your library’s calendar. There are often, craft times, or other activities that your child will love to be involved in this summer.

Take advantage and keep your child’s reading strong and positive!

100 Laps

This week 2 of our 206 students made it to the 100 Lap club! These two have been diligently working to run 100 laps by going to Run Club each morning. Give a round of applause for the stamina, diligence and motivation they’ve worked towards!

Tablets

This week, I was able to attend a device training. We now have our devices and I have been trained. Though they are bit limited in what they can do, I gained a great perspective of what they can do and how to maximize the learning. We got the chance to practice taking out and putting away our tablets. We will continue to practice tablet etiquette and will get some opportunities to use our mini computers this year. The kids are so excited (so am I…love technology!

  • LUNCH – Please make sure you send your child with a disposable lunch and drink as we will be mobile all day.

 Thank You Again

What a week this was! I felt so loved with all the special treats this week! As this is my first year at EBS, the special activities are all new to me!

  • Monday – The door was FABULOUS! Thank you for taking the time to custom the door design to describe me! I loved each little shoe, the pathway, the pennant with such a thematic saying and the balloons and design around the door. It was pointed out to me, that there was even a picture of me running on that door! Fantastic! Thank you so much for putting so much thought into this project!
  • Tuesday – I was delighted with delicious and thoughtful snacks of every type. Thank you for all the delicious food snacks! I even found a few new snacks that I will be adding to my snack menu for the future! Thank you!
  • Wednesday – (and many of the other days…) students and families brought in notes, pictures, cards, gift cards with some of the most thoughtful words! This will the best! I loved reading each and every note, coloring page, and card! I love my job and your kids, but I can’t tell you how encouraging and “bucket-filling” it was to read each note. Thank you for the kind and generous gift cards. In the afternoon, you all provided us with lunch though the AFP. It was a delicious mediterranean spread. It was such a treat to have a ready-made lunch with such delicious flavors…Thank you as you all are my AFP!
  • Thursday –  The cards continued to come this day along with many of the key or favorite office supplies I use in class! I have some beloved products that help me to organize, hang or write neater. These were wonderful treats and brought a giddiness of joy as I love these products for my classroom.
  • Friday – Each student brought in beautiful flowers which I am still enjoying this weekend! Ironically the Gerbera Daisy is one of my favorite flowers! They remind me of happiness so they have always been a flower I’ve looked at with brightness! Thank you for brightening up our room with flowers and joy and wonderful balloon!

I am so touched and grateful for each of you! Thank you for showering me with all the love, cards, gifts, supplies, flowers, notes, treats, etc! I feel honored and privileged to have worked with your sweeties and with each of you this year. I’ve uploaded a couple of pictures to highlight the week along with a picture of one of the  sweet cards I received below that I received this week. Besides the fact that this card warmed my heart, it cracked me up as this child remembered to include my blue hair…check closely! Haha! Such detail!

Open House 2015

We had a great success and turn out on Thursday night. Thank you for all of you who made it in for the classroom hour! Your kids had a blast seeing each other at night and touring you around the classroom. They have learned so much this year and had so much to share with you and loved taking to each station to see their work and abilities! Hopefully you all got to check out the Art Show in the auditorium (applause to our three Fine Artist Volunteers who supported our 206 Students). Here are some pictures below of the night. Many of you enjoyed the Photo Wall and sent your pictures in.

NO Approved Food List Amendment

Due to a couple health issues that occurred at our school recently, it has come to our attention that “Peanut Free” snack labels/items/brands are not always consistent. Meaning that if you purchased two bags of “safe” pretzels from a “Safe Foods Snack List,” it doesn’t necessarily mean they are both processed in a No Nut Facility/Factory. Each bag could have come from different facility …. one could have been made in a Peanut Free Factory while the other one could have been made in a factory that DOES process peanuts. Therefore, the concern is that teachers/parents will use the list without checking labels or where the food has been processed. We have been asked to take down Safe Food Lists to ensure that we are always checking labels to keep our kids safe.

LAST Book Order for the year!

Our last Book Order of the year is out! Orders are due by Friday 5/22/15 as I want to get the order processed quickly just to make sure we get it back with plenty of time to spare. Remember if you order on line, you are able to order from any of the other catalogs. There are some great books for summer reading.

Our Promethean Board is WORKING!

I’m not sure if you remember my mentioning, but we got our Promethean Board installed (Thank You Mr. Morici) just around Spring Break. Since then, there have been some complications in using it as more than a Document Camera due to a program I was having issues running. This program pairs up with the board in order to make it interactive and a touch screen. Friday morning, the wonderful Mickey Brown (from our district’s IT department) came all the way over to EBS in the pouring rain to get me my device (with the program) to use the board immediately! Boy did we use it Friday …. for math and writing, and some exploring! The kids (and I) are psyched! This board is amazing!Photo May 15, 2 49 44 PM (1)

Device Training

This Tuesday, I will be out of the classroom for another technology gift that we have received for our classroom. Tuesday I will be attending Device Training as we have now received a small tablet device for each student in the class to use. I’d really like to get some use in before the end of the year, so I’m taking a training course to see how we can use them best in our class as there are some restrictions in using them. We are so excited to be technologically advancing in 206!

Thank You Mom!

Mamas …we (your child and I) absolutely adore you!  Being a mom is the most wonderful, difficult and important job you’ll ever have or do! You are amazing and deserve to be honored this weekend! Thank you for all the extra time you take and all the patience you extend even on the most difficult of days! We will always love you and have the utmost respect for what you do! Thank you for loving us and believing in us to attain anything! Happy Mother’s Day! Don’t forget ….we’re proud of you too!

The hardest job in the world is the best job in the world!

P.S. Hope you enjoy your little gift from your little one. They wanted to surprise you with it this Sunday morning. A special shout out to 206’s Grandma Jan,  for helping me on Friday to surprise all you moms with the gift, cards, and wrapping for the Mother’s Day gifts. Check out these pics that Ms. Jan took of our kiddos!

Details About Our Last Field Trip

  • Driver Information – All drivers, please remember to turn in (1. your driver form, 2. a copy of your CA license and 3. a copy of your registration) this week!
  • Lunch – Plan a disposable lunch. Plan to pack your child a lunch that is fully disposable with no containers, lunch bags or metal utensils.
  • Attire – The day of the field trip, we will be wearing our EBS Jog-A-Thon shirts from this past March. (See a picture of the shirt below) This will help us to stay together as our 206 group.
  • Details will also go home in folders as we get closer. Please turn all of these in by this Friday.

Pokemon Cards – Not Allowed

A new rule has been issued at school regarding Pokemon cards. These are not allowed on campus and need to be left at home. It is recommended that all toys stay at home, so toys will remain safe and are not a distraction to the learning environment.

Music with Mr. Waczek

You may not get to see it, but can your children sing! Our amazing music teacher has great talents. He plays many games with them around singing and holding a tune. It is beautiful to hear their little voices. Once I was even able to hear a solo by one of the students…absolutely beautiful! Here’s a picture I got to sneak in when they didn’t know I was peeking in!

Late or Tardy?

If you arrive at school after 8:45 (official school start time), please remember to stop by the office for a late slip as attendance is often already submitted.

Also remember to have your child bring their folder inside as the folders are emptied/stuffed first thing in the morning (Thank You…. Hilda Yu and Alice Sestok) and it is very possible your child’s folder will not get emptied or filled with new information if it is left outside. This week some picture orders/money almost missed the deadline as they were left outside when students arrived late.

This guy…..

This guy…this great guy was named Vice Principal of the Year by the Administrators Association of San Diego. We are so proud of him! He works ridiculously hard in so many different areas at EBS that you might not even know about. He makes an awesome team with our Principal Ms. Sloan as they work together to set a fantastic tone and support students, teachers and parents to make EBS what it is today. If you don’t know much about Mr. Morici, click here to read his bio and give him a round of applause! Congratulations Mr. Morici!

Poetry in 206

Are these kids natural poets or what! We did our first poetry lesson on Tuesday this week. We built this chart over the course of this week. We read and studied some mentor texts and looked at what other poets did. We created this list of what we noticed and tried on a few of them. Check out the two samples below from some 206 poets that shared their work aloud!

Math

  • Tools – We have built up a toolbox that we use when solving our math problems. (see chart below) We use these tools to solve and show our thinking. The students have greatly improved in using the number line and are continuing to work on it. See any new ones…try them on during your Family Math Problem in the homework!
  • “How we show math stories” – Below you will see another math chart about we show our math stories (not how we solve them). Most of the year we spent our time showing through number bonds. As of more recently we have added number sentences (with the “=” same as symbol….see blog post from a couple weeks ago).
  • Parts to 10 – The past few weeks we have worked a lot on knowing and practicing parts to 10(1+9, 2+8, 3+7, 4+6, 5+5, etc). Continue to practice these at home by playing
    • Bears in the cave
    • Start with 6 bears (or another object in your hand)
    • Have your child count how many there are
    • Grab a handful (some of the bears) and put behind your back
    • Ask your student, “How many bears are hiding?”
    • Can they name how many are behind your back without counting. If it is too difficult, start with a lower number. If they are able to name the number without counting, start with a higher number.

The objective is for our students to know these parts to 10 with automaticity. Many of our students can count mentally to figure out how many are missing, but we are continuing to work to know the parts to 10 without counting.

Field Trip

Chaperones and Drivers – We are so excited to go to the zoo! This is our last field trip of the year. The zoo has limited us on the number people in our group, so we have all our chaperones and drivers. Due to the high number of volunteers and cars, each car will have 2 adults and a small group of children. Thank you in advance for your flexibility either being a driver or chaperone. We’ll see you all on May 18th (we’ll send another reminder home before the big day arrives).

Book Order

May Book Orders just went out on Friday. Remember you are welcome to order from any of the Scholastic Book Order forms using our class code. Feel free to check out the other book order magazines on line to purchase books from different grades or categories. Book orders are due by Thursday, May 7th. We’ll try to squeeze in one more book order before summer!
