It is exciting to see our class working together and being kind to each other. We have a great group of kids!
Today we did our first lesson in our Core Knowledge books. We learned the saying: "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you," and we talked and wrote about ways that we can treat people kindly. Along with that, we read the book Me Too by Mercer Meyer, and we learned our class rule #2: Be respectful. The kids worked in teams and drew the best pictures of people and things that they will respect ( https://novotnenews.weebly.com/gratitude--cheers.html). Today we also began our first art lesson about the three primary colors: red, yellow, and blue. We will soon be learning about how they work together to create secondary and complimentary colors.
We had a math assessment again today (yesterday we worked on math facts - today we were seeing how well the students can understand and apply math concepts). It was a big job for them, and so we also learned our class rule #4: Do your best. We also had a bonus recess as a reward for their great work.
Today the kids had their first music class with Ms. Perkins. Our class has music on Monday and Thursday afternoons.
I'm sure that your kids will be tuckered out after their first full day. Have a great, restful evening. I look forward to seeing them again tomorrow!
