5M – April 9, 2018 Reminders and Requests

Dear Parents,

Reminders:

All students should have the straps on their backpacks curled up and secured with rubber bands

All students need to have their costume shirt handed in

Requests please:

I need a couple of parents to volunteer their time and “bejewel” our shirts for the play. Of course I will provide PPP hours for this

I have created a new motivation strategy for the kids. They can now earn (or be fined) Munro Money. Every two weeks I will have a concession where the kids can purchase candy, ice cream, stickers, small toys etc from me. To help with these costs and to provide some variety I was wondering if there are any toys or old Art supplies you would like to donate to the concession? This would be appreciated very much!

I look forward to another fun week with the kids!

Kind Regards,

Ms. Munro

Hello Parents!

Term Two is slowly coming to a close! Our “Bible: Care for our Common Home” projects are being laminated by the laminating team so we can bind them. Sorry, the wait is still in effect! Fortunately though, the children are finished their iMovie interview projects! If you could please send your child with your email then they can send it to you. Or you can always email me back and I can forward it to you. For the project the children focused on professionalism, editing and communication strategies such as:

A-Ask

L-Listen -if they keep the conversation then great, either wise….

A-Ask another question

D-Dig

D-Deeper

E-Empathize (how you feel, how you felt, how you found this situation before)

R-Readdress (start the A Ladder again)

*Students also worked on open ended questions versus closed ended questions to ensure they have a strong interview

  1. Do you have a brother? The person can simply reply, No.

vs.
