This week we have been learning about standing up for our friends as we prepare for pink shirt day next week. Pink Shirt Day is on Wednesday February 24th and we have been learning about what the day means and what the pink shirt symbolizes. I am encouraging all students to wear pink on Wednesday.
We have read several books to support our learning and had several discussions about how we can keep our classroom and school a place where we all feel safe and welcome. We have been practicing using our strong voices if we see someone being unkind. We learned that even a little voice can say stop, and that if one voice stands up and says stop, then others will join in.
We read several stories to support our learning and our discussions.
We will continue our conversation next week.
We have continued to learn double addition facts. We have gotten very good with addition to 10 and are just beginning to learn addition of numbers that add to 11 – 20.
Here is a video if you want to practice with your child.
