Week 8 Uppercase Letters are: R, L, A, O

As soon as your child learns the uppercase letter that starts their name, they can begin writing their name in cursive in class!!  When you leave a comment on this post, you can tell us something you noticed, something you are proud of or something you are still struggling with.  Don’t forget to leave a comment so we know that you completed your homework.  I loved the comments that have detail (specifics) AND followed the rules of writing!


Second Step

This week, we practiced the first part of STEP problem solving process wish is Say the problem without blame.  In order to do this we need to calm down and then state what we want or need.  Can your child take the following scenario and practice saying the problem without blame?

Student A wants to play with other friends but Student B only wants student A to play with them.  They are using words like you always play with them and you never play with me.

How could you follow the first part of STEP?
