The students have been getting anxious, excitement building as they feel the winter break edging closer and closer. It is fun seeing how energized they are, but at the same time, I am having to remind them that we still need to be on task, and do our best to complete work.
The students have found that not getting in their work, and being off task has consequences. Reading Buddies on Thursdays is a reward, so if there has been off task behavior or work is not done, they have to stay in homeroom to complete their work silently. It’s hard to learn how to take personal responsibility for your work and actions, but I am working my best on instilling that positive attitude in the students.
Please remember that I do try and keep in contact with you as much as I can. I contact via phone, class dojo, my classroom website, email, and of course, the newsletter handouts. If you ever have any concerns, or wish for clarification on something, please contact me at 541-782-3226, ext. 4226. I really appreciate contact when your student isn’t going to be at school so that I can prepare work for them to do so that they can keep up. The winter cold and flu season is definitely here, so get lots of rest, drink lots of fluids, dress warmly, and take care of yourselves.
