It’s time for a party. I celebrate successes of all kinds, and, hopefully, today is the first of many this year. Today was a Top Banana celebration made for the best letter fluency masters I know. That’s right! Every single little monkey in my class has mastered their letters and can fluently identify at least 40 in a minute. Whew! That’s fast. They didn’t believe they could do it. But they did!
So it was time to celebrate! And how better than with a sweet banana split made for a top banana queen or king!
When a student masters their letter fluency goal, they get a certificate and their banana put on our tree . . . We all cheer and hoot and holler and make an all around big deal over it.
And you want to know the best part . . .as soon as they make one goal . . . they are on to the next. I have a feeling it won’t be that long until I’m throwing a Baseball Word Champs party. This year’s class just can’t seem to get enough of ball words, and they are working like crazy to master those words.
