When I came into the classroom today, I walked in to find Elizabeth standing on a chair trying to reach the fire alarm while the other children cheered her on. When I asked her why, she told me it was because her friends dared her to.

Elizabeth is very popular with the rest of the class. She's so sweet and one of the most friendly children I've ever encountered. Though a little talkative as you know from her behavior chart! :) I can always count on her to make sure everyone's having fun and feeling included. She will loan a fellow student anything they ask for and often never asks for it back. She's usually the first to ask if I need help but I sometimes wonder if her sweetness can be a hinderance.

It's very clear that she wants to be liked and I worry that it makes her a bit easily lead? She and I had a talk about not doing things for others' approval and being a leader opposed to a follower. She seemed receptive but I wanted to make sure you were aware of it at home. She was very very upset and apologetic so I didn't really think any more punishment was necessary, but I just wanted to touch base and make sure you were aware of what happened and my concerns.

Elizabeth really is a joy to have in class, I want to reiterate that. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to give me a call!
