Today we studied this interesting photograph of a volcano. While there was a lot of discussion of what it could be, when we shared together this was said to be an "upside volcano." We talked about how this photograph was taken from high above and that it is a bird's eye view. The students had a lot of questions and observations, so we watched a short video about volcanoes. Then we learned that volcanoes are a landform, and that we will be learning more about landforms over the next couple weeks.
We read the sequel to Knufflebunny today called, Knufflebunny Too, by Mo Willems. Once again, Trixie's feelings change throughout the story. Ask me to tell you about the story and how Trixie's feelings change.
Mrs. Kanter came in and talked about tattletelling, or squealing. She read a great book called Don't Squeal Unless It's a Big Deal. They discussed how to know if something is a big deal or not, which is tricky because with young children lots of things are big deals to them. This is something we will work on throughout the year, but we want to emphasize that if someone is being hurt, bullied, is not being safe, or if property is being destroyed or an animal hurt, an adult has to be told immediately. We talked again about kid-size problems and using de-bug. This is again an understanding that will develop over time. Ask me to show you the paper I brought home about squealing.
Have a nice evening!
