Week 9 Uppercase Letters are: C, E, G!

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 learned how to take responsibility.  Student will further cement their knowledge of the problem-solving steps by using them to come up with positive solutions to interpersonal problems.  This lesson sets positive norms for how students should handle situations where they have hurt someone else’s feelings or upset someone else.  In particular, students work on coming up with ways to make amends, so problems are resolved rather than escalate.
