5th and 6th Grade
5th graders have had a chance to meet Mrs. Landmon and learn what she does as well as the rules for the counseling office.
5th graders have had a classroom guidance lesson on Kindness. We talked about the fact that we can always say "I'm sorry" but we can't take back hurtful things we say to others. *Be sure and ask your student about our Toothpaste lesson*
5th and 6th graders have started Lunch Bunch with Mrs. Landmon. This is a time for students to get to know each other and Mrs. Landmon is a small group type setting during their regular lunch time.
6th graders had a classroom guidance lesson on respect. We discussed ways we show respect to our parents, teachers, other adults, and our friends. The students understand that we don't have to LIKE someone to show them RESPECT.
We wrapped September up with a 5th grade classroom guidance lesson on DIVERSITY. The students participated in an activity that showed us how boring things would be if we were all the same. They agreed that our differences make the world around us a better, more interesting place. We ended the lesson by writing a note to a friend letting them know something we appreciate about them.
