Dear Parents,

Ahhhh…finally! I hope you all enjoyed the clean air and blue skies this evening. Here’s hoping for a week of fun learning and outdoor recesses. It was exciting to look at your children’s first writing samples of the year and compare them with their writing after just a few days of instruction. They are all very capable of learning new strategies and applying them to their own work independently. It’s going to be a great year! That being said, one thing that I did notice is that we have quite a few who are very cautious if they aren’t sure they have the correct answer. Making errors and mistakes is essential to learning…if we never take risks, our potential for growth is severely limited. Let’s all encourage these young ones to stretch themselves, use what they already know and have learned, and then…jump in there and give it a go! This week we have swimming on Monday and Wednesday and Library on Friday. Helpful hint…don’t send your child in their white polo on Thursdays as that is our day for Art with Mrs. Hobbes. Kind regards, Lisa

PS Tonight’s photos are of our little book buddies. When the children are working on their personal reading stamina…they have a little book buddy to read to and help keep them focused on the text
