Principal's Achievement Award

We have had two Friday assemblies so far this term. Four awards have been won by Room 2 children. The awards are for different ways of thinking interdependently.
Grady's award was for following the rules. It's important to follow the rules because then you know what to do and so does everyone else. That is part of thinking interdependently.
Nic's award was for being willing to help others.
Billy James' award was for seeing when a job needed to be done and doing it quickly and quietly.Kane's award was for helping people with technology.

It is great that we have interdependent thinkers in our class.

A great location for a swim

The OK Picnic Book on PhotoPeach
We talked today about all the places we like to swim.  One of the best places has to be Martins Bay.  That's where we have our picnic every year.
This year a group of children worked to create a story based on "The OK Book" by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Tom Lichtenheld.  All the children made pictures showing the things we do at the picnic.
Here's a link to another class that has done some work based on this book
Kane asked me to post this list of swimming locations that the class made together.
