We GoNoodle, do you?

GoNoodle is an awesome program that we've been using at Chets Creek for going on 3 years now! We actually got recognition from the district for being the first school in county to use it in every classroom when it first came out. 

In our classroom, we usually do a few GoNoodle activities to break up our morning inbetween subjects and sometimes in the afternoon when we need a brain break. The students love it! We get a chance to stretch and move around to many different interactive videos.

Today, we had our first transformation with our first GoNoodle avatar:
What a cool looking dude!

Check it out at home:
It's Free!

Adventures with Whiteboards

 We are using white boards to practice writing our alphabet, numbers and lots words! We are even using them to drawing pictures and explain math ideas. 
What a fun way to practice our skills anywhere around the room.

38 Students, 2 teachers and Laptops

It is possible! 

We had a busy morning using laptops in our classroom. We are very proud of all the students that waited patiently for their laptop to get set up and ready. 

Great Job, friends!

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom

We were so caught up in making our coconut trees that we didn't get any pictures while making them. 

Today, we read and sang along with the book, Chicka Chicka Boom Boom. Every student explored the letters in their name and make a coconut tree of their own.

Our coconut trees will be up outside our classroom on Friday. :)

Sink or Float

Our first of many science labs went great! We continue to practice following directions and working together. The students had a blast making predictions and dropping objects into water to see if they sink or float.

Behavior Chart

Today, we started enforcing our classroom behavior chart. As the days go on, students are being taught the expectations of the classroom. Each day we review and practice our rules, rituals and routines. As clips moved up and down on our chart today, we were very happy with the growth students are showing as they learn how the classroom operates. 

Please make sure to check your child's blue folder calendar and initial it daily. If the date square is "White" your child had a good day and performed as expected. Pink and purple marks are examples of going beyond expectations. A yellow mark is a warning. Blue or green marks represent behaviors that were not acceptable. A red mark is a possible referral and call home. 


Playground Fun!

It was a beautiful day outside to play with new friends!
