Show & Tell

Each week a different student will bring show and tell for them to share with the class. Don't worry parents we will be sure to let you know when it is your child's week and send a reminder the day of , we got you!

Show and Tell not only lets us get to know each student and their interest better, building friendships between students as they learn more about each other, it also gives students the opportunity to build their public speaking skills. Is there a better way to build your speaking skill then talking to friends about something you love?

Class Pet

Meet Mr. Frizzle, beloved Class Pet!

Mr. Frizzle loves adventure, each week he travels home with one of the students to see what life is like at their home. He tries new things, eats new foods, and does a whole lot of play and snuggling. 

The purpose of Mr. Frizzle is 3 part. 1. to teach the students responsiblity, taking care of something without the pressure of it actually being living 2. to help students get comfortable with public seaking as they tell the class what Mr. Frizzle did with them during their week 3. Its just fun!

So far we have learned that Mr. Frizzles favorite food is Mac and Fish and he loves bedtime stories!
