Lisa Shelby, Principal
As we are getting settled into our routine, students have asked me about show & tell. I would like the show & tell to be connected to our units of study. For the very first show & tell, I have given the first graders an assignment. They are to create a story bag. They each decorated a brown paper lunch sack in class this morning, which they will be bringing home to fill.
I modeled by sharing a story bag of my own. I pulled out a bookmark to show that I liked to read, a wooden fish because I like fishing, a pretty rock that reminded me of walking along the river and spending time outside… I’m sure you’re getting the idea. I just want them to collect some small things (not priceless treasures) to put in the bag that will help remind them of something they want to tell about themselves, so we can get to know each other better.
Schedule for sharing the story bags:
Monday – Emmalee, Johnathan, Aliana
Tuesday – Lilly, Porter, Murray
Wednesday – Aven, Zeta, Qmia, Mayley
Thursday – Shaye, Wren, John
Friday – No school for students!
Thanks for your help.
