Next week, we will be working on the "bucket filler/dipper" concept.  We will be reading the books, Have You Filled a Bucket Today? by Carol McCloud and How Full Is Your Bucket? by Tom Rath and Mary Reckmeyer.  Using these books, we will be discussing "bucket filler and bucket dipper" behaviors.  Next week, ask your children if they are filling buckets!  In the Resources and Tools tab, you can download the sheet we will use to document different behaviors.  Feel free to print it out to use at home. 
I hope everyone had a fabulous break!  I enjoyed time with my family and sweet baby boy!  

In social group, students will be discussing New Years Resolutions in regards to their social skills.  They will be writing goals that they want to work on.  We will display them in the SCORES room so they can be reminded of what they think is important to work on for themselves.  You can see an example under the "resources and tools" tab. 

In Lunch Bunch, students will continue working on their conversation skills.  We will be playing "Conversation Chutes and Ladders".  Remember to encourage good conversation skills when you are at home.  We focus on looking at the speaker, maintaining the topic of the conversation, asking questions and taking turns speaking and listening.  You can learn more about this game under the "resources and tools" tab.

Let me know if you have any questions or concerns.  I am here to help!  -Mrs. Cardenas
