R.E.S.P.E.C.T. find out what it means to me!

Hi Parents,
This week we continued our discussion about disrespect and respect by reading the book Chrysanthemum by Kevin Henkes. A girl felt disrespected by her peers who made fun of her name but with the help of their teacher (wink, wink) they soon wanted her name! The kids have really taken to using the words “respect/respectful” and “disrespect/disrespectful” and reminding each other how to be. It’s an interesting and welcome addition to the classroom. I’m just happy they remember what I say. 
We will add on to this discussion by talking about respecting our school, our parks, our homes, and the world around us and how we can do this. Since we are talking about it in class, this is a good time to reinforce your ideas of respect with them.
The last week before our Fall break It rained at school for the first time in a long while and we went outside and sang some old-time rain songs.That was fun.
