Choices.... We all make choices constantly. This year, I will be using that word a lot in my class. We will talk about making safe choices and I want my students to really understand that they always have the responsibility to make safe choices.
In Science, we have been discussing the 4 R's: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and Repurpose. While recycling is very important, we realize that many items are sent to recycling bins when they may still be useful. For example, water bottles may be cleaned and refilled. Another example of using our 4 R's is to repurpose an item. You can take the same water bottle and after carefully (with parental supervision) cutting off the top, make a really cool pencil holder! WOW!!!
