Here it is the Monday after a terrible tragedy took place just three days ago and my heart continues to ache for the families of those who lost their lives at Sandy Hook Elementary School. It also aches for those poor children who witnessed this tragedy. I will continue to send my love and prayers to the city of Newtown, CT and I ask that you do the same if you are someone who prays.
As you begin your Monday, many of your students may have questions, may be fearful or confused. If you are needing help in knowing how to assist them please visit Debbie Clement's post from yesterday that have several resources for you.
In light of the fast approaching holiday I have put together a Holiday Challenge checklist for those of you who want to keep your students brains busy while they are away from school during the winter break. I send the checklist home with students over the break but it is not mandatory. Students who complete the checklist can bring it back signed and completed get a starburst and a BEE buck (our 'caught doing something positive' tickets) And the best part...this checklist is a FREEBIE just for you! Just click on freebie above or the picture below and download it for your kiddos today!
Take care, God Bless and love your students unconditionally! Keep doing what your doing and make a difference in their lives!
