Start With Kindess Week September 23-27: This year, I am focusing on creating a kindness revolution here at Hartley. I hope to teach your students through classroom lessons and activities the importance and benefits of being kind and building positive relationships with everyone. To support this goal this month, Hartley will be participating in “Start with Hello” week, developed by the Sandy Hook Promise organization. This nationwide program promotes awareness of inclusion in school and the community. Please see the schedule below for the daily themes.—Mrs. Kosobucki
Monday: “Hey Day”: Challenge students to say “Hello” to students they don’t know using different verbal and nonverbal greetings.
Tuesday: No one sits or plays alone: Encourage students to invite others to sit or play with them.
Wednesday: Wear your favorite shirt: Teach kids ways to spark a conversion with someone they don’t know yet.
Thursday: Random acts of kindness: Inspire students to perform a random act of kindness for anyone at school/home.
Friday: Green Day: Wear green to school to show support for “Start with Hello” week.
Learning and Growing We’ve Done This Week:
Reading: Story Structure
Math: Adding and subtracting two digit numbers within 50
Social Studies: The Constitution, being a good citizen
Writing: Taking part in a writing community
Have extra time at home? Help your students with their addition & subtraction facts to 20. Second grade students will need to be fluent in these facts to be successful this school year. Students can practice with Xtra Math using this link. Reading over the weekend is important! Have your students ready to take an AR test when they return to school.
