We had a great Halloween day! We read The Little Old Lady Who Wasn't Afraid of Anything. We listend for nouns and verbs in the story, then drew one of each on a big index card. We labeled them with the words nound and verb.
Today, as part of our Health and Wellness Week, we talked about peacemaking. We read the book How to Apologize, by David LaRochelle. This book has animal characters who have silly conflicts but clearly describes how to apologize. The children were told to say they were sorry for what happened. We talked about being sincere, and practiced how your voice sounds when you are sincere. We also talked about not making excuses, but instead accepting responsibility for what occured. We learned that writing a note is another way to make an apology. This is a great book, and an important topic. Making apologies is an important part of making and keeping healthy friendships.
It was a busy day with our parade at the beginning of the day, and our party at the end of the day. Here are a few pictures from our very exciting day!
I hope you enjoyed the photos!
