Welcome to the SBLC Blog 2015-2106 school year! We have had an incredibly busy week getting to know each other, learning procedures, and becoming experts on our classroom expectations (see the "proud-of-our-awesome-effort" poses above). We spent much of this week teambuilding and cultivating a community of learners. This is going to provide an essential strong foundation to what happens all year long. Building those relationships establishes trust, bolsters confidence, and increases motivation.
We are slowly introducing routines, especially switching blocks and movement. We want students to feel secure in knowing the process, so that when they have to, they come into Blocks (core subjects) ready to learn and concentrating on instruction, rather than feeling rushed/confused.
Thanks for your support by getting them here to school each day on time – rested and ready! It’s great to hear them say, “I got up extra early today to make sure I had plenty of time!”
A few important details:
*Please sign your child’s agenda each night – look through the goals of the day, and ask them to tell you a bit about them. One of our goals is that they become good communicators!
*Back to School Night is September 10 – SBLC is scheduled from 7-7:45pm. We will have lots of information that night, and we enjoy seeing all our parents there!
*Scholastic orders can be placed online (you can click on the Scholastic box on the right side of this page) or with the form sent home today (please send orders in to Mrs. Blake if not submitting online).
*In addition to being a learning resource and lesson platform for our kiddos, we will be using this blog to post helpful articles we find and information links sharing research behind why we design the SBLC the way it is.
Enjoy some glimpses of our week!
