Please read the letter that was sent home from Mr. Lyons regarding Mrs. Petelle's maternity leave beginning today! Ms. Trahan and I are thrilled for the Petelle family!
On to news from today We had a terrific day! All the students came to school ready to listen and work hard. Ms. Trahan and I are impressed with everyone's ability to follow directions and use kindergarten behavior in the hallway and classroom.
Students practiced walking in a straight and quiet line through the hallways.
(They did get a little excited when I took their picture.)
Students explored some math materials that we will be using for counting practice and other math concepts throughout the year. I heard lots of conversations going on between students as I walked around the room!
We finished the day with a closing circle where we each had a turn to tell everyone which part of the day was our favorite. About half the class said "the whole day!"
