August is in the books!

Well we have finished the first three and a half weeks! It's been a busy but exciting start to our new school year. The first week of school we did a lot of different actvities to get to know each better. As many of you know, most of us were together last year. Well we have 12 classmates that are new to room 36. So of course we want to get to know them just as much as they want toget to know everyone else. One activity we did was comparing our names. We read the book Chrysanthemum by Kevin Henkes. The students then wrote their names on graph paper, cut them out and glued them on chart paper, according to how many letters they had.

In our classroom, we also have a class positive behavior chart. We all go Bananas for Good Behavior. Once we fill our chart with stars we will earn a Banana Split Party! The kids can earn stars by getting a compliment from another teacher or an extra special report frmo the Specials teachers. So far we have 5 stars! Great job!

Chapel Glen also started a school wide positive beahvior program called Glen Gold. All the kids have the chance to earn Glen Gold tickets by showing positive behavior. Here are two of Xzavia's Gold tickets. Way to go!
