Dear Families,

I wanted to take a moment to wish you a restful and wonderful break. I hope that you enjoy all of the time with your sweet children, as I have so far this year. I feel personally blessed to have your child in my class and to work with such supportive parents. Words cannot express the appreciation I have for  the times you have sent in supplies, lent a helping hand, or passed along encouraging words of thanks. I love what I do and have enjoyed spending the end of 2017 with such sweet Mallards. We will hit the ground running in 2018 and make every moment count! Happy holidays and new year!

The Three Questions

We will be reading and  discussing the book The Three Questions .

The boy in the book, Nikolai, asks three very deep questions about life. They are:

  1. When is it the best time to do things?
  2. Who is the most important one?
  3. What is the right thing to do?

We are using this to guide us in decision making. We will be discussing “deep” questions and “surface” questions to assist us in making choices and in having a better understanding of texts we are reading and material we are studying.

When redirecting choices, we reference the three questions…

” Is it the best time to do this?”

” Who or what is the most important one?”

” What is the right thing to do?”
