Dear Families,

It was fun to see all of the baby pictures last week. Some kids have changed a lot, and some were just the same! Looking at our pictures helped us think about how far we have come. We worked on brochures about ourselves, and wrote poems about what we used to be like.

This week
We’ll be getting moody this week as we think about our feelings. Our emotional health is really important. We’ll be writing poems and making art about our feelings.

Bowling
Wednesday is our big field trip to the bowling alley! I can’t wait to see all of our kids rock and roll at Lariat Lanes. You are very welcome to join the party. We’ll be there from 8:30-9:30. This week well do bowling math to help us get ready.

Shape Up Show
We are busy perfecting our Shape Up show. We’d like everyone to wear black for the show on March 29.
The performance will be at 7:45 on Friday, March 29. You are invited to room 102 after the show to see our collection of work from Shape Up.

Camping!
After spring break, Camp comes up really fast. We will be camping on May 17 and 18. Parents are welcome to join the fun. Save the dates!

Recess Clothes
It’s supposed to be warm next week, but be sure to dress in layers anyway, and send at least a light jacket. It’s a good time to send the rain boots too. It’ll be muddy.

Mistaken Goals
Dawn and I were sharing a very helpful resource with our student teachers last week, and we thought that parents might want to see it too. It can provide insight and help when kids are engaging in behaviors that are hard to handle.
Look for a sheet called “mistaken goals” in your BEE book. It comes from Jane Nelson’s Positive Discipline series, which Dawn and I rely on in our work as teachers and parents.

Sally
It’s been so nice to see Sally grow and bloom as a teacher! She has been doing lots of teaching and brings wonderful energy, insight and love to the class.
Thanks! Kristin
