WittFitt balls! I have purchased two WittFitt balls to use in class. A generous parent has purchased five green balls for our reading table. My goal is to wittfitt the entire class but we are first trying it out at the reading table. These balls help with concentration and are comfortable to sit on. There are many research articles online. Check out the website. www.wittfitt.com
The 100th day of school is on Tuesday. We will celebrate this day with Mrs. Trombley's class. We will build marshmallow structures too.
Valentine's Day Celebration. We will celebrate on Monday in the afternoon. Children can bring in Valentines for the class and we will spend some time delivering them to our friends. This celebration will be for the kids only. I'll send home a class list tomorrow. Thanks!
