Celebrating Reading With First Grade


First grade celebrated one of their reading milestones with our class this week. Each first grader paired up with one of our kindergarten students and read a book to them.  It was great for all of these young readers to share books with each other and make new friends in the process.

Better Not Pout -- Keeping Behavior in Check

 It's that time of year when the kids are so excited that "you know who" is coming to town! A way we keep them in check is our "Better Not Pout" bags.  Each day that they have good behavior, they get small treat in their bag:  a pencil, eraser, candy, book, or small toy.  This works like a charm and they check every day to make sure their bags are getting fatter and fatter.
