My apologies for not posting last week. Some times it is hard to know what to post about! We have been working very diligently on context clues and word problems, neither of which are all that exciting!
Did your child come home asking for a yo-yo and then not tell you what the yo-yo meant?! Very likely this happened!
On Thursday, we had an amazing assembly put on by The Ned Show. It was honestly one of the best and most motivating assemblies I have ever been to! Our awesome presenter was so engaging and truly taught the students a very powerful message. He told the story about Ned and used a yo-yo to do many fun tricks!
Throughout the assembly students learned that each letter of Ned stood for something different.
N-never give up
D-do your best
What a simple saying, but with a HUGE impact. The Ned Show promotes positive behaviors and doing your very very best every single day!

Now where do the yo-yos come in? The yo-yos are for sale in front of the school this week Monday-Thursday! The money raised from the yo-yo sales will go towards another performance at another school! How neat is that!
If you are interested in finding out more about Ned, I encourage you to watch the video from the picture, and then explore around the site!
I will definitely be purchasing my yo-yo tomorrow!
