In kindergarten this month, we are reading 'The Monster Who Lost His Mean' and becomes an ONSTER! The ONSTER is kind and makes new human friends after his former monster friends tease and make fun of him for being different. This is a great story to talk about friendships!
Lessons are all about having fun while learning this week! First grade classes are making Feelings Cubes and then playing with them in pairs to talk about and act out those feelings. Third, Fourth and Fifth grade classes are talking about test taking strategies, developing their own Test Plan and playing TESTO Bingo!
How cute are our new Buddy to Buddy tshirts?!? Ms. Greer came up with the idea and our Buddy to Buddy students were super excited to get them! Buddy to Buddy is a program at Parkwood that welcomes new students to our school by activities such as taking them on a campus tour, eating lunch with them, and checking on them a few weeks after they enroll.
I am the school counselor at Parkwood Elementary School. I am excited to share updates on this blog about guidance activities!
