Positive Post It DayWe had a great time writing positive notes to our friends and posting them all around the school yesterday! The kids took it very seriously and were diligent at getting the notes just right!
We are currently learning about Cause and Effect so we are looking for that in stories and in our daily lives. The weather is a great topic to use when talking about cause and effect, and also everyday decision making. Try it at home and see how much your child understands!
Money is the topic we're on now - knowing the names of coins, their values, and counting them to find the total. Check out your child's math papers to see how they are doing. It's an important life skill...as is telling time, which is the topic we'll cover next. So much of our world is digital now - it seems that kids have a harder time reading an analog clock! Quiz them and let me know if you'd like some practice sheets to use at home...for time or money.
