Today we had a good start to our year. Each morning we will do a Picture Talk. The picture will be photographs or artwork, or possibly even just a quote or cartoon. This morning we studied the picture above. We talked about what we noticed and what we wondered. Today we practiced thinking in our head first about what we noticed. We will usually turn and talk to a partner, but we will work on that tomorrow, then we share out. Ask me to tell you what I notice about this painting.
We unpacked, found our cubby, and ordered lunch. We listened to a funny story called "You're Finally Here!," by Melanie Watts. We noticed the bunny character and how his feelings changed throughout the book. We will be talking about feelings often this first marking period in Health.
We watched a short video of Bert and Ernie today to learn about a portrait. The children drew a portrait of themselves. We will save this in our time capsule that we will open at the end of the year.
We had a great first day!
