I am excited about this new opportunity! With the help of multiple donators, in the Kettle Falls community and beyond, sixty-five students each month will get to take home a brand new book from Scholastic to add to their personal library! All sixty-five students received a Pete the Cat book in the month of September. I can't wait to see each childs love of reading grow through this project. Thank you to all those who made this project possible!
Every morning we start our day with a CREW meeting. This is a time to welcome everyone to the classroom. There is a different greeting every month of the year. Students learn to shake hands, look each other in the eye and greet with a name. The students also work on team building through an initiative. Our job is to move the hula hoop around the circle without using our hands. Our times have fluctuated from 2 minutes 20 seconds to 1 minute 30 seconds. After the initiative is over we discuss what strategies worked and what didn't for each round. I can't wait to see how our CREW grows this year!
