Johnny the K

Our friend, Johnny the K, came to Fuller Meadow today, spreading his message of positivity, kindness and respect.  Johnny the K is always a Fuller Meadow favorite, and today did not disappoint.  It was so fun to watch him while the FM staff were in their Life is Good attire. Thank you to the MPTO for bringing such amazing programs to our students.  Please support the PTO! IMG_2646.JPGIMG_2652.JPGIMG_2669.JPG

Team Time K-2

We had our first week of Team Time this week.  Team Time is a wonderful opportunity for your children to meet with me, and we usually do a pro-social lesson.  Team Time occurs 2-3 times per month per grade level.  Ask your child about Team Time!

This year, our team time themes will be from our TTU Community Read of this book:

Life is Good: The Book

The book is about Bert and John Jacobs, the founders of Life is Good.  They write about 10 superpowers.  Each month this school year, we will focus on a different super power.

I also introduced the children to this other Life is Good book:

This book has great sayings and illustrations.

Finally, our lesson was about this book:

This book nicely explains “The Golden Rule”, which is a rule that I love to be sure that all children know that we expect at Fuller Meadow School.


1H Scientists

Mrs. Higgins’ Firsties were scientists today.  They came up with a hypothesis and then did an experiment where they collected data outside three times today.  They had to work cooperatively in small groups to see where the sun’s shadow would be at certain times of the day!  It was exciting to see these first-grade scientists at work.  It is fun to hear their thinking out loud!

We are using a new software platform to help us with our Universal Screenings in both ELA and Mathematics.  The students in Mrs. Kennedy’s class were so great today as we tried this new technology out!  It was fun to be taught by Mrs. Boulanger and Mrs. Reid as well!  These second graders did amazing work as they completed their Universal Screenings online using laptops!  Way to go 2K!
