Traditions We Love

This month we have talked a lot about traditions.  We talked about what children around the world do with their teeth when they fall out, and we have talked about our family traditions around the holidays.  We graphed our traditions to compare them and this week we partnered up to complete a Venn Diagram to find out our similarities and differences when it comes to Christmas traditions.  It was wonderful to hear about your fantastic and creative traditions.  The New Year is right around the corner and a tradition that I have is to set a goal for myself for the coming year.  Today I am going to ask the Crickets to blog about something they would like to accomplish in 2012.  I hope you all have wonderful and warm holidays and a fantastic 2012.

Crickets Care!

This month we will be talking a lot about our third core concept, Caring.  We have talked about how we can be caring here at school and at home.  Yesterday we had our all school meeting and our class shared our Hearts that Care project.  We have made colorful hearts to hand out at our school to people that we care about.  Each heart says "A Cricket Cares About You!"  It is always nice to know that people care about you.  We can also do things that show that we care about our planet.  For example in our classroom we try to recycle everything that we can.  I am asking the crickets to share some ways that they show that they care.
