Purple Up!

Thursday, April 27, 2017

Purple Up! Today was our last Purple Up day for Month of the Military Child 2017. These kiddos are so special and unique. I love everything they represent and having the privilege of being a part of their lives. Military children are extremely resilient and strong. I am so blessed to be a mother and teacher of these amazing kiddos!

Purple Up Day

Wednesday, April 19, 2017

REMINDER: Tomorrow is "Purple Up" day! Students should wear purple to honor their role as a military dependent.

Flat Nassar

This is a reminder that pictures of Flat Nassar are due this week. Students brought home their Flat Nassar folder, on the Thursday before Spring Break. They were to take pictures of themselves with Flat Nassar, during their Spring Break. We will use the pictures and their daily Journal entries to create a presentation, next week. If you have not emailed pictures to me, please do so, as soon as possible. You can also send them through the Remind app, save them to a CD, or attach them to our classroom Facebook page, as a message. Please do not upload them to the page as a post, use the Messenger app to message them to me.

If you have any questions please let me know. So far, I have pictures from 5 students (A.B., C.C., C.S., J.H., and L.P.). If you were not able to take pictures with Flat Nassar, during Spring Break, then take them this week. This project counts as a grade for writing, speaking/listening, and homework.

Flat Nassar 2017

Thursday, April 6, 2017

If you haven't met Flat Nassar yet, then ask your child to introduce you (folders are in backpacks). Students were introduced to Flat Nassar this afternoon. They decorated her and read through all instructions on activities Flat Nassar loves to participate in. I've attached information here, in case, items do not make it home.

The task is for students to spend their Spring Break with Flat Nassar. They should document their daily activities each day with a photo of your child and Flat Nassar together. In addition, students have a journal to record the days activity. Once we return to school AND after STEAM week, students will put together a presentation using their photos and journal entries.

Students can upload their photos to their Google Drive accounts, save them on a CD (no thumb drives), or you can email the photos to my school email. Please do not upload them here on our FB page. Students should have, at least, 1 photo per day along with a journal entry. This activity will count as a reading, writing, and speaking/listening grade.

This should be a fun activity! In the past, Flat Nassar has had exciting Spring Breaks and was even left in a trash can in Hawaii! OOPS! She's read books with her friend, jumped on trampolines, spent a day being lazy in pj's, and traveled to foreign countries. The ideas are endless and exciting to see when we return to school after Spring Break! Have fun!

Autism Walk 2017

Just a quick reminder that tomorrow is the Autism Walk. Parents are invited to walk with their child. You can meet the class at the exit doors near our classroom. Once we exit the doors, students will turn left and walk along the back of the school, around to the front, and return back to the exit doors. It's difficult for the whole class to stay together, so students should meet back at the exit doors, after they walk one lap.

I will not be there tomorrow, so once students return to the exit doors, the substitute will conduct a head count. If you want to check your child out, after the walk, please let the substitute know and check them out with the front office.

Hope you can make it!
