5th Grade ROCKSTARs!

Teamwork Towers

We have had a fantastic two days with our new 5th graders! We have totally enjoyed getting to know these ladies and gentlemen. They have great attitudes and are displaying so many ROCKSTAR 🎸 behaviors!

Today we worked together to create towers out of cups but only using a rubber band and yarn…these kids came up with some super creative ideas!

First week

We had a great start to fourth grade! The students enjoyed some time outside, complete with sidewalk chalk incorporating our new Hambright motto “MARK!

Also, I tried to get a class picture. Sorry for facing the sun. I’ll do better next time. 🙂

The second day- Well done.

I think I should write a paraody called the Twelve Days of Kindergarten. I am sure it would be very entertaining.

Another great day here at Hambright. This years’ classes are very social and are already playing with one another. I am used to seeing kindergarteners play mainly by themselves and then they eventually start playing with friends. I love watching the children learn and grow in kindergarten.

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom

Today after reading and watching Chicka Chicka Boom Boom we retold the story using pictures and then made a hat. Later in the day we discussed what would happen to a coconut if we put it in water. Sink? or Float? We then did the experiment with a coconut and observed the result! Ask your child what happened!

Subitizing

Today in math we talked about subitizing. Subitizing is when you can recognize a pattern and be able to say the number without actually counting it. This is a skill that will help us later. We played a coconut game and watched a video to help us with this skill enjoy the video!

Thank you also for ALL of the wonderful supplies for our classroom. There will be lots of learning going on in our kindergarten room and we will put the supplies to good use!

Happy First Day!

What a wonderful and busy first day of school! Everyone had a fantastic day! Students shared how their feelings about the first day of school, and I’m happy to say that most of them were so excited to be here!

Please go through the paperwork in your child’s home folder that was sent out today. I’m asking for that paperwork to be returned as soon as possible.

I can’t wait to see your child tomorrow for the second day of school! Tomorrow we will be talking about buses 🙂

Welcome Back!!!

It was a great day getting to know each 6th grader! I am looking forward to the year even more after getting to meet the students and learning a little about each one. I can’t wait to get to know them better and learn together as the year goes on. Hopefully, students felt the same and came home happy. I think it was a great start to the year!

Be on the look out for some important paperwork to come home with your child in their blue “Friday Folder” this Friday. You can expect important communication from school, completed class and homework, or returned tests/quizzes to come home in this folder each week.

I am looking forward to meeting you next week at Back to School night, but until then, feel free to contact me and let me know if there are any concerns as your child gets acclimated to 6th grade and our class.

Mrs. Tercha’s Sixth Grade News

Great First Day!

We had a wonderful first day in 6th grade today! These students have started off on the right foot!

We spent a lot of time going over rules and expectations for our class room and for our large group instruction time. According to our students’ votes, the number one rule is…

R-E-S-P-E-C-T!

Respect one another and yourself. Coming in a close second was, ‘No fighting’, followed by ‘No talking when someone else is talking’.

Tomorrow we will be introducing our school wide PBIS plan (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports). A newsletter will be coming home for you to look at later this week about PBIS at Hambright.

Thank you all for a wonderful first day! I look forward to seeing you all tomorrow!

Each student got to write two rules for the class on post-its and stick them to the board.
The bars represent the same rule.

ClassDoJo

This year, I am trying “ClassDoJo” to reinforce positive behavior. I will be able to:

  • Encourage students for any skill or value- whether it’s working hard, being helpful, receiving a compliment from a substitute teacher, etc.
  • Get parents/families involved by sharing pictures and posts of wonderful classroom moments
  • Communicate with parents as a group and individually

You will be able to see your child’s behavior every day (you will ONLY be able to see YOUR child’s behavior). You will know what he/she earned points for/lost points for. Please feel free to write to me through ClassDoJo if you have any questions or concerns about school or your child’s behavior. After the first couple of weeks… I will most likely post more on ClassDojo than my blog. You may ask me anything and everything on ClassDoJo. Thanks for your patience and grace as I try something new! 🙂

I will send home a log-in paper tomorrow! Please try to download the app or subscribe online before the start of next week! I hope to get ClassDoJo up and running by next week! 🙂

This was a WONDERFUL first day of third grade! I am so excited to spend a year with your children. They are kind, respectful, hardworking, and driven. It’s going to be a great year!

Parents, you have some homework. Your child should have brought home a blue HOME FOLDER. There are several papers for you to review and sign. There are also some papers to keep for future reference.

Students have homework as well. The yellow MATH paper should be completed tonight so that we may begin our math project tomorrow. I will be posting photos on our class DOJO page, as this is exclusive for parents eyes only. For information about how to register on Dojo, check the parent letter that is in your child’s home folder.

Tomorrow is Day B, which means we have Applied Engineering. We are also starting the day with a school assembly to learn about how we as leaders can Make Our MARK.

See you tomorrow!

August 20, 2019 (Tomorrow’s Our First Day!)

Welcome to 6-S!  Home of the 2019 Track and Field Champions!

The 2019-20 School Year begins August 21st and here is our specials schedule: Day A-Library; Day B-Art; Day C-Physical Education; Day D-Music.

I hope everyone had an enjoyable and relaxing summer.  My family and I had an incredible summer, which went by way too quickly.  We spent most of our days working on our home, basking in the sun at the beach, staying dry in our tent while camping, digging in the garden, fixing a one-hundred year old home, eating my famous barbeque, and trying to stay cool.  Again, I hope your family had an equally enjoyable summer break. 

This letter will provide you with some basic information about our classroom and our schedule.  To stay up to date with everyday happenings in our classroom, please feel free to visit our classroom blog, which I will detail later in this letter.

Today is Day A of a four-day cycle.  Here is a schedule of our special classes:

Day A         Library                 9:50-10:35

Day B         Art                      9:50-10:35

Day C         Phys. Ed.             9:50-10:35*

Day D Music 9:50-10:35

*On Day C your child should wear sneakers to school for gym.

It is important for your child to have a backpack for school that is large enough to hold textbooks and folders.  Sixth graders will receive student planners, which are an invaluable communication tool.  I will have students record their homework in this planner each day before dismissal.  In addition to the planner, families can review the day’s events and/or assignments on our classroom blog.  Updated daily, the blog outlines the day’s events, while providing reminders for short and long-term assignments.  Students and other family members are encouraged to comment or ask questions on the blog site.  I check the blog every evening and monitor it daily (even weekends).  To access the blog please see the blog site address listed below.   I strongly encourage you to check your child’s planner and subscribe to our classroom blog.  Also, please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions regarding homework.

As most of you well know, I enjoy celebrating birthdays in our classroom.  You are welcome to send special treats for the students to enjoy.  At the present time, there are 24 students in our class.  Please check with me regarding students with allergies in our classroom before preparing a treat.

As a reminder, work folders will be sent home every Monday.  I want to keep the lines of communication open at all times.  Feel free to ask questions, offer suggestions, and visit our classroom.  I look forward to meeting each one of you as our school year progresses.  If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at school.  Together we will make your child’s school year meaningful and successful.

Sincerely, Mr. Schettler
