Exciting Events at SES
Wow!  What a fun time it has been in May!  On May 11th we had our first ever breakfast buddies for Kindergarten- Second grade.  We had a wonderful speaker who came out and read an interactive story with dancing about spending time with someone.  Male Buddies ate with our students and had quality time together.  Be on the look out, grades 3-5 have breakfast buddies May 18th!  

On May 13th, we had grandparents day!  What a turn out!  When we walked out of the classroom to go to lunch after our program, there were so many loving grandparents in the hall!  Families had a delicious lunch together, had fun activities such as painting, scavenger hunts, and meeting Famous Indiana Hoosiers!b2ap3_thumbnail_DSC_0444.JPG

WIN Time
On March 28th, your K/2 team here at Stinesville started participating in WIN time. WIN time is simply “What I Need” time. We sat down as a K/2 team and levelled each of the students based on the different skills that they need. The skills range from letter names and sounds all the way to 3rd grade passages with questions. Each classroom teacher has their own group that they work with. We also utilize the Instructional Assistants that are available at the time. With the combined effort, we have a total of 6 different groups. We will be continuously meeting as a team and assessing students to make sure that we are seeing individual growth and moving students within our groups so that they are making great strides. Aside from the more obvious “catching up” of different skills, we are also “pushing” students to go further. This helps make this time have a purpose for every student. We are all very excited to have this time built in to our daily schedule every day, except Wednesdays. Be sure to look at these pictures of some students in their groups.
