Hope everyone is enjoying the warm and sunny weather, I know that our class is truly happy that we have switched up our schedule so that we have homework/reading, meeting, story time and activities all before we go out so that they can stay out and play with all the other grades.
There is some significant buzz going round the classroom about friends being able to organize and teach a tabletop activity during our activity time. Here is how it works, they write down on a piece of paper what their idea is, what, if any, supplies are needed then they submit it to us. We then discuss the particulars of when they are able to run their activity. We have friends working with friends and encouraging others to try something new, it is great community building!
So far we have had; Nilou and Maeve running a nail spa, Geo holding a creating lilypads out of coffee filters table and Connor showed friends how to make flowers out of pipecleaners. Michelle and Bihan teamed up with each other to create a ‘ Don’t Let The Pigeon Drive The Bus’ bulletin. On “deck” is Leo with a new card game and Yenna will be teaching friends how to speak Korean.
Friends have been earning stars for their kind and helpful behavior and their books are filling up with stars! They quickly turn them in for a prize from our treasure box, all good stuff
