Responsive Classroom:

This year, CES will be implementing Responsive Classroom, which is "an evidence-based approach to teaching that focuses on engaging academics, positive community, effective management, and developmental awareness." The program will incorporate morning meeting activities, energizers and movement, games and activities, and other community building activities.  

Some of our favorite activities and games include:  pop up letter/number, coseeki, aroostasha, roller coaster, whatcha gonna do when the weekend is here chant, and many other songs/chants!  Please ask your child about the games and activities, we would love to share them at home!

PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports):

PBIS is a school wide behavior plan that focuses on rewarding students for positive behavior inside and outside of the classroom.  We are asking our students to be a STARR in the classroom, hallways, bathrooms, playground, etc.  Be on the lookout for additional information on this program throughout the year! 

S- Safe
T- Tolerance
A- Acceptance
R- Responsibility 
R- Respect 

Mindfulness!
As part of PBIS, we are practicing mindfulness, or being aware of your own bodies and feelings.  We are developing strategies to help us when we are upset or not feeling well. Some of these strategies include deep belly breaths, yoga poses, draw and crumble, and a lot of GoNoodles!  I hope you can see the students using some of these strategies at home as well!

Scholastic Reading Club: 

Our classroom is part of the Scholastic Reading Club program, which allows teachers and parents to order books through magazines sent home monthly and the online website.  

Each month, your child will bring home book order forms that provide a variety of different topics, interests, and reading levels.  Each time you order through Scholastic Reading Club, our class earns points to add new books to our classroom library.
