We started our day with two short videos that showed different patterns of motion and forces. We watched only a short clip of the dominoes video since it's long. The children were glued to the screen for these, and at playtime used wooden blocks to make their own paths.
In honor of Women's History Month, we read the book Just Help! by Sonia Sotomayor. The subtitle is How to Build a Better World, and the book was filled with examples of children helping others. The children will be bringing home a page each time we read a Women's History Month book that has a quote on it from the woman we learned about. Today's quote was: “There are two questions I ask myself every day. One is: what have I learned today?... The second is: who have I helped today?” On one side of the paper the children drew something from the book, the Sesame Street video we watched, or a picture of the Supreme Court and Sonia Sotomayor. On the other side they drew something they learned today and a way they helped today. I told them it could be from yesterday too since it was early in the day! Ask me to show you my paper about Sonia Sotomayor.
Have a nice evening!
