The Tribes Agreement for the Month of June is “Personal Best.” Students at TAOTS reflected on their achievements this year and wrote about how they showed their personal best. The Tribes Committee chose “Personal Best” as the closing agreement for the school year so students could reflect upon and highlight their achievements as well as think about goals to set for the upcoming school year. Students from all grades are represented on the Bulletin Board.
The Tribes Bulletin Board for May was done by the second grade. Their focus was the Tribes Agreement: “Mutual Respect.”
The students discussed the definition of mutual respect and they each chose a scenario and responded with an informative explanation of how they would show mutual respect in the moment. Students were instructed to explain in detail what mutual respect in the moment would look like and sound like. The students also had a discussion about why mutual respect is important.
The Tribes Bulletin Board for April was done by the first grade. Their focus was the Tribes Agreement: “Safety with Body and Heart.”
The students did a writing piece based on the essential question: How can I use what I know about realistic fiction to share how others can show “safety with body and heart?”
First graders learned how realistic fiction authors create fictional characters and place them in real life adventures/situations. Students were taught how a realistic fiction story includes a beginning, middle, end, setting, problem and a solution. The students also learned how to bring their stories to life by describing how their character feels and acts. Each student than created a fictional character who uses ” safety with body and heart” on an adventure!
