Another busy week of trying to play catch up from our "ice day" last Friday and no school on Monday. Not only that, but Miss Nemechek and I were out Thursday afternoon for meetings in regards to her student teaching and I am out today for a personal day that was planned forever ago. I am excited for a normal, 5 day week next week to help with routine.
This week we welcomed our awesome student teacher from Mizzou, Nicole Nemechek. Check your child's Friday Folder for a note from Nicole and a permission slip that she needs you to sign and return. We are excited and lucky to have her in our classroom! There will be times from now until the end of April where we teach together, where I teach and she observes/helps out and where she teaches alone and I observe/help out. The kids are so lucky to have TWO teachers in their classroom for the rest of the year!
NEXT WEEK'S SPELLING WORD: SAID
(since it is a tricky word, but one they use often in reading and writing,
there will only be one new word next week)
Be Kind, Be Respectful
Last week started our 5 weeks of learning about our school expectations at BEU. Last week we focused on being kind. Our 3rd grade buddies in Mrs. Dunn's classroom showed kindness by teaching our class and Mrs. Edgar's special education class board games. This was originally scheduled for last Friday, but due to the snow day we rescheduled and played on Tuesday. The kids had a blast and made many new friends ! We hope to do things with Mrs. Dunn and Mrs. Edgar's class again throughout the rest of the school year!
This week we focused on being respectful & were able to celebrate with hat day on Friday

Speaking of kind and respectful, it was a MUCH better week at specials! The specialists were happy to report that the kiddos did a much better job of listening, following directions, having safe bodies and being respectful to others.
Thank you SO VERY MUCH for your support at home with this over the last week. It is greatly appreciated and I love that we can all work as a team from home and school! You guys are awesome!
