Hello Hoover Rockets,
It was another great week of learning at Hoover.  Now that the temperature has dropped please make sure you are sending warm weather gear with your Hoover Rockets.  We will be outside for recess as long as the temperature with the windchill is 15 degrees and above.  Students should have a warm winter coat, warm gloves, and a hat.  It is important that students are able to put on their gear independently.  Perhaps practice this weekend to see if they know how to zip their winter coat and the correct sequence for getting ready.   We notice that children often put on their boots before the snow pants.  If they are able to get ready on their own, they will have more time outside at recess to play.
Winter Dress Sequence
1.  Shoes off
2.  Snow Pants on
3.  Boots on
4.  Coat on and zip
5.  Hat on
6.  Gloves on last

Did you know that this month we are focusing on the Climate Character trait of Mindfulness?  Mindfulness  is being aware in the moment, maintaining a moment- by-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment. The students also watched a short video during lunch to learn more about mindfulness and to practice slow breathing which assists in calming. Here are the links to the videos if you wanted to watch them with your child at home. Mindfulness for Children - The Storm
