These days have been set aside especially to cater for conferences, as meeting during the normal busy school week is not possible. Please plan to be available on these days as a lot of preparation goes into planning between teachers and admin to ensure that siblings are scheduled around the same time and support teachers such as EAL can be in attendance too. News From Ms. Tindall’s Class We have been working a lot on friendships and the Melawati Way. First grade can be a difficult time for students as there is a huge growth in social skills during the year. This means testing boundaries of friendships and coming up with all sorts of rules for being (or not being a friend.) Please encourage growth in this area by talking through situations with your child and sharing stories of how you have felt in similar situations and what you did to work things out. At school we advocate the number one thing to do is to talk about the problem directly with the person who is bothering you and, on the other side, being a good listener and trying to work out a solution together so that both sides “win”. In partnership, Ms. Tindall    Monday Reading:   Zoom in on Comprehension this week. How do you know you’ve understood the author’s message? Can you retell the story in your own words? Can you identify the problem and solution? Can you state a number of facts from the text? Can you summarize what the book was about? Can you explain the main idea? How do you know if you are comprehending? What do you do if you don’t understand? Math:   Find some things of a large quantity around your home that you can count? (EG Legos, blocks, books, cutlery). Make a plan of how you will count them? How will you organize them? How will you keep track of what you have and haven’t counted? Is there a way you can group them to make counting more efficient?
