We use REMIND in our classroom so that I can shoot out one text to the whole group to remind you about upcoming field trips, gatherings, etc. It is soooo much better than hoping that you receive the note that was sent home!! :-)

Happy Summer!!! Last photos of the year are now posted. Also see the slideshow under those pictures for work that the kids did with Mrs. Greenleaf in our Library in June! Have a great summer and see you in September!
We started the week by going to the Maine State Aquarium. It was fun learning about sharks including petting dogfish. We also had a session about lobsters. The kids loved seeing two blue lobsters, an albino lobster and a 17 pound monster lobster! We wrapped up the week with Songs of the Sea! It is always a great way to end the year!!
Library projects with Mrs. Greenleaf!
This has been such a busy week that I had to do THREE slide shows! Seabird Sue started our week off right! We had a day at Pemaquid Point and a day at Darling Marine Center with a trip home on the River Tripper! We dissected squid on Friday, had two bubble parties, a picnic, read with puppets, free math day, worked on our Marine Unit books, had an extra recess and so much more!! Four and a half days to go and so much more fun to come!!
This was a busy week for us! We had our Field Day and a day long trip to Pemaquid Beach! We learned about the beach itself and protecting it, tidepools and Salt Marshes!!! It was amazing!
Fun With Mr. and Mrs. Fish!
Japanese Cooking at the FARMS Kitchen!!
Last week our class started a new behavior plan for our classroom. Our stop light chart is gone! We are now using the Wheel of Choice (as seen above - click on it to make it bigger). Each of these choices is being taught and practiced in the classroom. If we use the Wheel with a student during the week, we record the results and it goes into my records. On the back is another sheet, which is a rubric that we use for GSB in general. If the kids get to a "1", I will send a behavior note home for you to sign as usual. So far it is going GREAT!!
The reason for this change is to help kids to learn strategies to help them to deal with feelings and behaviors that they are dealing with during their day. If they go to the "cool off spot" now, it is usually because they choose it! Please let me know if you have any questions! I am very excited to give this a try!!
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by phone at my home phone (which is also my cell phone) 529-5707. Please only call before 9 PM unless it is an emergency. Thanks and I am very excited about the year to come......it is going to be amazing!
