Thank-you to everyone for helping to make our Character Day so much fun! The kids were so proud of their costumes, and they did a great job talking about why they chose the character. We had a great visit with our third grade buddies who also were dressed up as their favorite characters.
Today we also had a bus evacuation drill. The children did a great job listening to the bus driver. Today they practiced exiting the bus safely from the side and walking to the back of the bus to wait to be escorted to a safe spot.
Today we visited Maine in our Read Across America trip. We read One Morning in Maine, by Robert Mccloskey. We made text-to-self connections as we listened. Ask me to tell you if I made a text-to-self connection. The story also showed a different lifestyle with this family living on an island and taking a boat to go to the grocery store. We also talked about why they took milk bottles to the store, and I share a text-to-self connection about how we used to take milk bottles to the milk store or put them on the porch for the milkman. I am old, but it was a good connection because I remember the very sweet milkman who delivered our milk, butter and cottage cheese.
I hope everyone has a safe, happy Spring Break!
