We started our day collecting data instead of a picture talk. We used this data and collected more throughout the day to make a prediction about which season is the favorite of most of the children in the class. We have talked about collecting data a few times and made pictographs, and we moved into a bar graph today as well. We looked at how many children voted for each item, which had the most and fewest, how many more some items had then another, and what that told us that might help us with determining what the class' favorite season might be. Here is our data. Ask me to tell you about the data.
We had more testing to do, so the children practiced handwriting the letter Aa, colored a heart word, and worked in math and literacy stations while I tested.
We had a quick SEL lesson that connected to the books Out of a Jar, by Deborah Marcero and Thundercake, by Patricia Polacco. This book was about worries. The book is Brave Every Day, by Trudy Ludwig. THIS BOOK! I love this book because the story is just sweet and gentle, beautiful illustrations, and just the right length. The children can make text-to-self connections as well as text-to-text connections, which we will be doing tomorrow, because of previous books we have read. The quote on the cover says "Only when we are afraid can we learn to be brave." Ask me to tell you what the main characters in this book and Thundercake did that was scary, but helped them become braver after doing it. Did you know your children almost always clap after I read to them? And today they claimed this was their favorite book. I love this book, but I bet when I put it in our favorites basket it isn't what is chosen first. The book Dude! is dominating in our room. I may have to hide it since it mostly is the word dude! All I wanted to do was to teach about exclamation marks and question marks, but now I get to listen to the word "dude" repeated over and over again until the announcements come on! And I love it!
Have a nice evening!

No wonder Nico has been saying "DUDE!" so much! Too funny! I assumed it was because of the show Bluey but this makes more sense. He even got my dad (his grandad) to start saying it with him. :)
