Don't let the name fool you! Yorlay pronounced Yor lie. She is a fifth grade student in Mr. Myron's class, Green Pod.
Yorlay, has a wonderful caring personality. She loves Math and enjoys Reading. She cooperates in class during Math lessons and is learning how to
add and subtract decimals. Also, she is learning how to multiply and divide decimals. She is Clever in Math. She like to hang out with her bestie, Joselyn.
When you see her during lunch or at recess, say "hi" to Yorlay. She is the one with the spunky, blonde streaks in her hair!!
Selecting somebody for spotlight student this week was a difficult choice. Luckily for me, my classroom helped me with that decision. Our spotlight student this week is Daniel . Some words that the class used to describe Daniel include smart, kind, funny, and very presentable.
I appreciate Daniel very much because he has done a lot to try to help others in the classroom. At his table there are two new students and he has done a great job helping them with the routines of the classroom and school.
One of Daniel's good friends said that whenever he's having a bad day, Daniel can make him happy by telling them a joke. Another student noticed that one time Daniel was playing with a bunch of little kids that were looking up to him.
Daniel truly is a great student, and it is no wonder that 40% of the class selected him as our spotlight student.
Room 21 in yellow pod is proud to have a student and friend like Itieli. He is a hard worker, funny, and kind. He will always greet you with a mighty hello and smile, and make sure he says goodbye to you each day. Itieli is a friend to all in our classroom. He is also a great role model for his peers. He always has his homework ready to go in the morning and loves to read during breakfast. Room 21 is a better place because of Itieli!
For our first spotlight of the year, I would like to spotlight a student, who sets an example for peers and younger students alike. He always works hard, participates, asks questions, follows directions, and pushes himself to be better each day. He is also kind, caring, and always willing to lend a hand to anyone in need. I am so proud that he is a member of our class, and I am very thankful to learn with him each day. This student is Naeata. Naeata, thank you for all your hard work. I can’t wait to see how much you grow this year and all that you accomplish!
Room 26 is lucky enough to have a student that always does his best work, has a great attitude, and is always nice to other students. That student is Hans!! Hans is a great example of how a student can be smart, cool, kind, handsome and funny...all at the same time! Hans always makes us laugh, but always at the appropriate time. He offers help when he can tell someone needs it, he asks for help if necessary, and he makes our classroom a better place. We sure are lucky to have Hans in our class!!
