Feb 4 - 8
The groundhog didn't see his shadow so we were out in the mild temps all week, yahoo! Therefore the unplanned fire drill on Monday (mechanical malfunction) went well evacuating the building as excellent school leaders, so proud. This tied nicely into the importance of listening as we heard the story of Howard B. Wigglebottom in library. We embraced using our best imagination as we started this BigDay unit that is full of fun thinking experiences (see pic). The Ten Black Dots book challenged us to use dots, we used oooorange ones, to make a picture, check them out. We also worked on letter Oo, a tricky one, yet they were outstanding with show-n- tell and created the oval art as only true artists can. At gym, we ran the track, a shape of a giant O, moving our large muscles in many ways, running, skipping, bear crawling, crab walking etc.Finally we played with recyclables and imagined all kinds of cool creations, it is inspiring to see their minds explore. Finally, ask us about the silly book titled Would You Rather..., I challenge you to reread it with them and see what you'd rather... ha!
