Today we started our day with a song by Mary Chapin Carpenter called I'm Really Glad I'm Me. We talked about what we like about ourselves and used a simple graphic organizer to list what we can do, what we have, and our character traits. We reviewed some traits from the Will I. Am Song "If What I Am" that we used at the beginning of the year. We will be using this organizer to write a poem about ourselves. We also watched a video of the book Unique Monique, by Maria Rousaki and learned about what it means to be unique in a group. We talked about the words ordinary and unique and then drew a picture to show an ordinary thing and the same thing only created to be unique. We continued to work with subtracting 1, 2 and 3, and practiced addition and subtraction by playing games. We visited Alaska today, and read another Cinderella story called The Salmon Princess by Mindy Dwyer.
Enjoy Mary Chapin Carpenter and her song I'm Really Glad I'm Me!
