When we ride the school bus, we follow all the rules. We listen to the driver, who takes us to our school. We sit down in our seats, and keep the aisles clear. We use our quiet voices, so our bus driver can hear!
Reading Connections…To Real Life Situations January is a wonderful time for new beginnings Parents please encourage your children to read more. An excellent way to promote reading is to demonstrate the importance of reading different types of text in real life situations: every day, adults read road signs, directions, informative articles, and more. Engage your child in helping you read so he or she can become aware of the various types of reading and also practice observation and decoding skills. For example, at the supermarket, point out the aisle signs to your child and have them tell you where to find specific items. Then ask them to find soup or pet food. When driving, ask for help in spotting street signs. Have your child read you the weather forecast from the newspaper to prepare for the day! Reading directions from a recipe or a board game can be a great way to reinforce both reading and following directions. Make it fun AND give your child a chance to be helpful and you will both be winners! Sandra May, St. Andrew School Media Specialist.
Counselor’s Corner As we start the new year, Take time to think about resolutions and new goals to achieve in the coming year. Challenging your child to try new things can be an adventure you can go on together. Make goals achievable. And remember these important tips. 1) Set Specific and realistic goals. Encourage your child to work on one thing at a time. Help them understand what they want to accomplish. Example – read a new book each month. 2) Make it Measurable – Set easy accomplishments for success. 3) Achievable - Make sure their goal challenging and fun. 4) Relevant – Link the goal to something your child can relate to. 5) Timely - Keep it simple. Strive for daily success. 6) Write them down. Hang them somewhere visible as a reminder Happy New Year Ms. Schatz, Guidance Counselor
