Painting Monday – Bring an Old Shirt to Wear

Written By: migliurit - Sep• 18•20

This is a reminder to bring an old shirt to put over your clothes for Monday’s Stream of Dreams fish painting! This is a school-wide activity, however students will be doing this within our own learning group. Unfortunately, this also falls on the same day of student photos, so ensure to bring an old shirt to put on over your clothes!

Parent – Teacher Conferences

Written By: migliurit - Sep• 18•20

Parent – Teacher Conferences will be on Wednesday, September 23rd from 2:00 – 6:00pm and Thursday, September 24th from 3:10 – 5:00pm. However, with our new health and safety protocols these intakes are going to look different this year with different classes conducting them in different ways. Our class this year will be doing our interviews via a Zoom Call (since I would love to see you face-to-face), or if you prefer over the phone. Your child was sent home a notice today for you to fill out and return by Monday! Looking forward to talking with you soon!

Donations to our Classroom Economy

Written By: migliurit - Sep• 14•20

In a few weeks students will be receiving a pay check for their jobs that they will be applying for! Some students may also receive Ticket Fines for talking during class time or not following directions…oh no! Students will be completing their accounting log putting in their Debit and Credits and will on their way with our classroom economy! October 1st is coming quickly, and we all know what the 1st of every month is…..Rent! Hopefully they earn enough money quickly with no fines, so that you can buy out your desk and not have to worry about paying rent each month for it!

We would love to have our first Auction in the beginning of December, but in order to do that, we will need to start collecting donations to add to our Prize Bin! If you have anything new or possibly used only once that you would like to donate it would be greatly appreciated by myself and the students of Division 3!

 

Sincerely,

Ms. Teresa Migliuri

Students Getting Jobs – Classroom Economy

Written By: migliurit - Sep• 14•20

Dear Parent/Guardian:

Our class will soon be beginning a classroom economy system for the school year. It’s an excellent tool for teaching financial responsibility and many other things, and I think the students will enjoy it. I want to let you know how it works.

Using classroom “currency,” students earn money for jobs and pay rent for their desks, chairs, textbooks, and cubbies. They also have the option to purchase their desk. They can earn bonus cash by helping others, and going above and beyond what is expected of them. On the other hand, students who don’t meet classroom expectations will be fined some of their classroom dollars. That could happen, for example, if they don’t complete assignments or don’t listen when other students are speaking.

The classroom economy helps students learn valuable life skills such as organization, the value of saving,
and delayed gratification. Rather than being told about the importance of these skills, they actually experience them. In addition, the system fits in well with our curriculum.

We’ll also have a little fun with it. After paying rent, students can save money to spend at auctions where they get to bid on popular items. The students will certainly enjoy themselves, and I know you will appreciate the skills and knowledge they learn along the way. If you or any family or friends have anything that they would like to donate to our Auction Bin we would be happy to take any new or gentle used items!

Don’t be surprised if your child comes home one day with questions about paying rent or regrets about overbidding for an auction item. You might find it a great opportunity to have a thoughtful discussion about financial responsibility.

If you have any questions about the classroom economy, please feel free to contact me.

Sincerely,

Ms. Migliuri
