First Day News

Aug. 31, 2016
Dear Parents,
Everyone had a great first day. The second grade students were good mentors for the first graders. The second graders helped them at choice time showing the first graders where different activities were in the room. The first graders practiced their friendship and social skills sharing materials and taking turns. Next week I will be sending home a parent handbook that will answer many of your questions like the difference in schedules for first and second grade. Our class will be studying how to be a good friend for the next several weeks. We will be brainstorming how to be a good friend and acting these skills out to reinforce them. We will be reading books about good friends and even watching videos about unlikely animal friends. Over the next couple weeks take the time to write a letter to me about your child and the goals you have for them this school year.
Thanks Mrs. Cram
Check out our class blog ( ) it is also accessible from the school website.
Ask your child what it means to be a good friend.
Ask how animals can become good friends.
