Ho, ho, ho, merry Christmas from our littlest learners at Meadow Brook! Today we had a surprise visitor all the way from the North Pole! He must have heard how hard your kindergartners have been working to learn their letters and sounds before the break. Our class wishes all of our Meadow Brook families a wonderful and safe holiday break, and we can’t wait to be with you in 2022!
2nd grade had their annual Christmas program. They even had one of their Christmas wishes come true as a hippopotamus joined them while they were singing! Go to our Facebook page to watch it! Here is the link! https://fb.watch/9URa-XgROX/
Every Monday after school the teachers at Meadow Brook get together to collaborate with their team members. This is a time for teachers to look at data collected in class and evaluate the effectiveness of their instruction. It is also a time for teachers to figure out ways they can help the students in their class learn better. The teachers at Meadow Brook love having time to work together with their team members!
Our 3rd Graders would LOVE to be elves at the North Pole to help Santa. We worked very hard all month learning how to be better writers. While thinking of talents and things that they are good at, they wrote a letter explaining their skills to Santa and why he should "hire" them. It was so much fun-and they were very convincing!
Here are what some of the students in Ms. Thomas's class said:
"Dear school, we have been working on a "Dear Santa" note! We worked 10 days to finish the note!" --Jayden Reynoso
In computers we learned about internet safety. We learned to pause and think while we are online. We need to stay on safe sites that are just right for us. We need to balance our online life with real life activities. We also learned that we need to keep our private information private. This includes passwords, address, full name and the city where we live. We also learned we need to stand up to bullies while online and be a good digital citizen.
