June 21- First Day of Summer School

Our first day of summer school went okay. I know most of my students and I met a few new ones. Welcome to everyone! We have a classroom store. The children and I discussed what credits would be for what. We also talked about what debits would happen as well. Each child has a credit and debit sheet and we use it daily!
