And just like that, week 1 is in the books!!! That of course means it is time for my first weekly(ish) class update. You will receive blog updates at the end of almost every week. Thanks for taking just a brief moment to read these posst.
My main goal for this first week of school was to make YOUR child feel comfortable coming to school. Without a sense of comfort and safety, learning simply cannot take place. So if your child ever expresses any feelings of anxiety or fear regarding school, do not hesitate to contact me. You won't hurt my feelings. Promise!
Many of you have asked to join the Facebook group. Please feel free to share with family and friends, but let me know when you do. I have had 1 or 2 requests from names I didn't recognize, so I did not grant them access. Also, if you'd rather NOT have your child's photo added to this private FB group, just let me know.
Thanks to those of you who have turned in all paperwork, etc. If you are in need of extra copies of anything, just ask & I will send them home!
Finally, I would encourage each of you to watch this TED Talk video. It contains some interesting insight into how to help your child succeed. Enjoy your nice, long weekend!
