We had our first yoga class this week, and it was fantastic. I am so happy we are able to participate as a class – thank you ARK! It sparked some worthwhile discussions about the benefits of practicing mindfulness daily.
We are talking about time in class, a fairly abstract concept! Please have discussions with your student about when they do various things at home, specifically mentioning A.M. and P.M. designations JThe practical application can really help develop their understanding!
We began building our Word Work stamina in class this week. Word Work is the Daily 5 task where students independently work on spelling and vocabulary development. This is the time where they can play with word patterns, word families, sight words, and so on.
