Kid Snippets

March19

I went to a Math training today and they shared this silly video of adults using kid voices. I thought this would be entertaining for both parents and teachers who have ever struggled to teach kids about some concept that they just.can’t.grasp

Poetry Writing

February25

Today is the first day of our Poetry Writing Unit. We are working on an Acrostic Poem titled Prairie. Our poetry is all based on the book Little House on the Prairie. As a class we brainstormed different words and phrases and then the kids are writing their own and decorating it on cardstock. This is the first of many poems that will be shared at our Beans & Biscuits Poetry Reading next Thursday.

Leadership Roles at Home

February21

Leadership Roles at Home

One of the best ways to help your child realize their leadership potential is to provide them with an opportunity to lead. Like other Leader in Me schools, we offer student leadership roles as a way to teach responsibility, leadership, and contribution. The same can be done in your home.

To begin:
1. Talk with your child about the leadership role he/she might be interested in at home.
2. Discuss why he/she is interested in the role. Ask what leadership qualities he/she has that will help. Ask how he/she will handle homework or other commitments with this new role.
3. Together, discuss, write, and sign the paper detailing the leadership behavior and expectations of the role.
Give your child a week or so to adjust and then discuss how it’s going. This may open a conversation on how to handle things that are too easy or too difficult.
