WHAT DOES CREATIVITY HAVE TO DO WITH ANYTHING?
RAINY DAYS PROCEDURES
LET´S BE CREATIVE AND MAKE THE BEST OUT OF THESE DAYS
1.- When it is raining during snack you could take kids down to the shaded area, the cafeteria or stay in the class.
2.- When it rains during lunch time, take the kids down to the cafeteria. You can stay there a little bit longer ( no more than 20 minutes). Use this time to eat.
3.- After eating lunch, CORE TEACHERS bring students back to class. Plan ahead of time for these days. On the link below you can find cool activities that kids could do. Make sure you ask them to bring some materials from home and have them in class ready to be used during these days.
4.- People who were assigned to be on that duty and are not CORE TEACHERS will be assigned to different classes to support teachers.
5.- When the Soccer Field is wet and with Puddles, it will be closed. Jorge will close it and will bring to recces equipment for them to play outside of it (basketball, hula hoops, etc)
6.- If is starts to rain in the middle of recess, please TEACHERS ON DUTY, gather them to a shaded area and bring them to their classrooms.
Core teachers, always be attentive if it rains during recess because your kids will have to go back to their classes
7.- On Monday make a list of students who do not have a water bottle and/or hat an email their parents(copy me on the email).
ALL TEACHERS ON DUTY MUST WEAR A HAT WHILE ON DUTY.
8.- Five minutes before recess is over, make sure you double check that all your students have their hats and water bottles with them. We will be checking that no hats and/or water bottles are left on the field.
It is every teacher´s responsibility to make sure all their kids come back form recces with both things.
AUTHOR STUDY SHOWCASES
For this Showcase, each class will be divided in 5 groups analyzing one book from the Author that was assigned to each level.
Each member of the group will focus on one part off the presentation.
Parents will be all sitting and listening to all 5 groups instead of walking around tables with groups. This way all groups can be heard and kids can really show parents all they have learned, as well as demonstrate fluency, pronunciation and public speaking skills.
