Well, we’ve made it through three full days of school. So far, so good.
In our two days together, we’ve learned about the people in our class through poetry and song. We’ve learned about the places in our classroom and in our school where we can find resources to help us develop our minds. And, we’ve learned about the things that will guide us to success by reading and developing questions for our fact sheets.
By far, I have enjoyed learning about the people around me the most. What an interesting group! When asked to describe yourselves with adjectives, you responded with this list: amazing, inquisitive, fantastic, awesome, overachieving, enthusiastic, the best, quiet, hard-working, super, multi-lingual, excited, fabulous, smart, excellent, pretty, responsible, wise, independent, beautiful, ambitious, metalhead, gamer, and cool.
It is safe to say that the apple does not fall far from the tree. Your parents are also: wonderful, amazing, awesome, highly motivated, supportive, proud, nice, involved, goofy, good-looking, interested, and ecstatic.
You have all piqued my interest with your one-word descriptions! I need to know more!
How did you get to be so inquisitive and enthusiastic? Did you have a teacher (or parent) who really motivated you to learn and grow? (Parents are our first teachers.) Tell us about your best teacher. What did he/she do to help you become the fabulous, smart student you are today?
I know we’re going to have a great year!
