This week we talked about cooperation. We read a story about a new student and focused on making others feel needed and made our new student, Beatrice Bear, feel welcome. Each student had a chance throughout the day to do this. They loved it so much that they asked to bring more new students to class. They were so cute with them today. We also focused on working as a team. We read The Little Red Hen and worked in groups to make a piece of art out of things they collected outside. We had a few rough patches, but learned some valuable lessons. For Choice Time the majority of the class choose to work together to create a mural of the ocean. They were so kind and cooperative and it was done without any prompting by me.
In honor of Earth Day we learned why there is day, night and seasons. We also learned what an equator and axis are. Today we learned 10 things we can do to help the Earth and practiced a few. We picked up all of the trash on campus, turned the water off while we were washing our hands, and turned off lights that were not needed.
HOMEWORK: The following assignments are to be done Monday-Friday
I'm thrilled to be teaching my sixth year at HRCCS! I went to Chico State where I received a BA in Liberal Studies, a Minor in Latin American Studies and my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential. I taught 3rd/4th for eight years at a multi-age, project-based, performing and visual arts school in my hometown of Stockton. My husband and I moved to Auburn in 2007 to be close to the trails and raise our children, Robby (9) and Amaya (4). I enjoy painting, cooking, working in the yard, and eating my way through San Francisco.
