Nightly routine and morning routine

As you know, routines are very important for children in the SRC. At school, we have a very structured day, and have many functional routines in place to help our students be as independent as possible. Part of our daily arrival routine includes unpacking his own backpack. Every morning, students will place their notebooks in a basket, their folders in a basket, and their journals in their desks. It will help their morning routine run smoothly if you can help them make sure that these items travel to and from school every day. However, these are great resources for you as well! The notebook is for communication between you and I, to fill in some of those missing pieces our students may need help communicating. The folder is for us to send home important information, and some great school work! The journal is where your child will tell you about his day! A great idea for families is to make reviewing these 3 items part of their evening routine--especially the journal! This is a great way to engage your child in conversation about his day!

We are off to a great start in the SRC primary classroom-today was filled with laughter and learning!
This is your child's fall journal on his desk with his schedule. He will write in this journal every afternoon. Please return it to school each day. At winter break, you can keep this journal at home, we will have a new one in January.

This is where your child will place his notebook and folder. Please make sure to return these items to school each day.
