The students of 4Wa were given a challenge that involved taking care of their pencils, and 27/27 students earned the prize today. I am proud of them for respect personal property and looking after their supplies!
We decided to choose a healthy prize that also promoted respect for each other. Each student selected a mandarin orange with a word written on it, and gave the orange to a classmate that they felt best matched the word. This activity allowed each student to feel respected, valued, and familiar to someone else in our classroom community. It was a great way to begin the week – and the citrus smell in our classroom was refreshing, too!
Which one of these words do you feel best describes YOU?
