Today we listened to a story called Love is My Favorite Thing, by Emma Chichester Clark. This story is about a dog named Plum. The dog tells the story. Plummie, as he likes to be called, tells about all the things he loves. Then he tells about a day when he made several poor choices. He just couldn't help himself. His owner told him not to, but he did it anyway. Ask me to tell you the things Plummie did. Plummie is put in time-out and wonders if his owners will still love him. As you might guess, of course they do. We made a text-to-text connection to No, George, No that we read earlier in the year about a dog who was learning self-control. We also made text-to-self connections and know our family, as well as our school family, will love us even when we made mistakes or don't have self-control. We know there will still be consequences, but that we will always be loved. This is a great book!
Although we were in Code Blue for part of the day, the children were not aware of what was happening in the area and were fine. We went on with our day as usual but students were not allowed to go anywhere in the building without an adult.
Happy Mother's Day to all the moms! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
