Our First Week of School!
The 4-5-6 team has had some new faces join us, while having some old friends move to other schools. Our 4/5 community has worked this week to learn and practice routines, helping new friends know what to do, while reminding each other how our school and classroom runs. We also spent a great deal of time discussing our class values and the expectations to follow Waterville's PAWS (Put your best foot forward; Always respect yourself, others and the environment; Work together to solve problems; Safety at all times). Our classes have involved cooperative problem solving activities and getting to know one another.
Each student was given a special homework folder, designed for our school several years ago. These folders are expected to go back and forth from school to home for important papers and homework assignments. Students will also have homework planners in which assignments will be recorded each day.
Over the next couple weeks, we will move to follow our regular schedule, beginning the first units in each class.
