Today we continued to talk about one part of persistence, which is showing your best effort in what you do. We talked about what it looks like, feels like, and what you need to do to be able to do your best. We know that being first or a fast finisher isn't necessarily best effort. We read a great book by Barney Saltzberg called A Little Bit of Oomph. We need to give that little extra oomph to make our work and learning our best! We will continue to work on remembering what we need to do to work our best and to learn to look at our work or performance and being to self-evaluate so we know what we need to do to make our work our best.
Today we worked more with deep breathing. We put a little stone on our belly to watch as we practiced inhaling and exhaling. We watched a great video clip about belly breathing. Check it out below!
We began a unit of study in Social Studies about jobs. We worked with a team to think fluently and write down as many jobs as we could. Wow! These little people know a lot about the world around them. We also looked at a couple books of artwork and found plane shapes in artwork.
Tomorrow is the 100th Day of School. We are very excited about our celebration. I am also looking forward to seeing the creations made by our kinders of 100. We will display them in the room for some of our school friends to come and see.
Have a nice evening!
