The first day of school! Your children did an outstanding job starting new routines!
We read First Grade Jitters today, and we talked about having the jitters! We then had some Jitter Juice...which we found out is WATER! We all agreed that water can be an excellent tool for taking the jitters away.
Speaking of water, please send your child to school with a water bottle. He/she may keep it at his/her desk. I just ask that it is in a spill proof non-breakable container. If your child's water bottle is small, please have him/her bring two!
We learned about being Bucket Fillers! Be sure to ask your child what it means to be a Bucket Filler!
