Team Time this week #kidsdeserveit #ttuchat #fullermeadow

Mrs. Marshall worked with the students this week during Team Time.  They talked about germs, hand washing and how to properly cough and sneeze.  The students got to watch these two silly (yet informative!) videos as well!

Thank you to Mrs. Marshall, our nurse extraordinaire for teaching us how to stay healthy and germ-free as we approach cold and flu season!

Veterans Day 2017 #kidsdeserveit #ttuchat #fullermeadow

We celebrated Veteran’s Day today at Fuller Meadow School. We had three veterans come to speak with the children, Mr. Bent, Mr. Coombs, and Mr. Goss.  The students did a wonderful job paying tribute and honoring these three veterans and other veterans who have served our country.  I challenged the students to make it their mission this weekend to thank a veteran for their service to our country.

How Full is Your Bucket? For Kids – Team Time #kidsdeserveit #ttuchat #fullermeadow #bucketfillers

This week, we read How Full is your Bucket? for kids to go along with our Bucketfilling theme.  (Click on the title if you would like to see it read to you on Youtube.)  In this book, it describes how each of us has an invisible bucket. When our bucket is full, we feel great. When it’s empty, we feel awful. Yet most children (and many adults) don’t realize the importance of having a full bucket throughout the day.

In How Full Is Your Bucket? For Kids, a boy named Felix begins to see how every interaction in a day either fills or empties his bucket. Felix then realizes that everything he says or does to other people fills or empties their buckets as well.

In this book, Felix learns how easy it can be to fill the buckets of his classmates, teachers and family members. At the end of the story, Felix learns to be a great bucket filler, and in the process, discovers that filling someone else’s bucket also fills his own.

Students love this book!  And they absolutely understand the concept of Bucketfilling.  Ask your student to talk about it and how they are bucket fillers each and every day.

Readers AND WRITERS in 1EH! #fullermeadow #kidsdeserveit #ttuchat

I was invited to check out the amazing writers in Mrs. E. Higgins’ classroom today! Their writing after just 33 days of grade 1 is quite impressive!  They are learning how to write a personal narrative, which is a piece of writing about a small moment in their lives.  The students did a remarkable job with their writing and then sharing their writing with their classmates, teachers and principal!
