Global Awareness among Students

TIME MAGAZINE

Dear Community First Painting LLC,  We have thoroughly enjoyed having these Time for Kids magazines in our classroom. We have had many great, in-depth discussions on real life problems around our globe. Our kids have enjoyed being able to read about what is being done and come up with their own ideas on how to solve it.   These magazines have inspired many of my kids to research further into the global issues that are presented in the articles. They have spent time thinking about problem solving and suggesting solutions to big problems that our world faces.   My students enjoy reading the articles together and discussing the comprehension questions together. Thank you so much for providing this opportunity for my kids!  With gratitude, Mrs. Sprague

Learning Rich Environment for Students

Instructional Carpet

Dear Community First Painting LLC, Thank you so much for our new carpet!!! The individual squares are the perfect sizes for 1st grade bodies. We don't have to worry about our classmates getting into our spaces and we are able to safely focus on learning.  We gather on the carpet everyday. We have our morning meetings there, we do our reading and math lessons sitting on it, and we also utilize the carpet for our much needed brain breaks.  We love it when our teacher lets us "sit anywhere" on the carpet...it's a real treat. We spend the majority of our day there, and the carpet provides us with a safe, learning-rich environment.  With gratitude, Ms. Maness
