I got a very nice note from Mrs. Consroe about how well the students did while I was away. She is a wonderful teacher, and I knew they would be in good hands with her! I'm so proud of the way the children welcomed her and responded to her kind, gentle manner!
Today we talked about how a character's feelings can change throughout a story. We reviewed the story Knufflebunny, by Mo Willems. We identified and labeled Trixie's feelings in the beginning of the story, middle of the story, and at the end of the story. Then we read a new story called Jabari Jumps, by Gaia Cornwall, that tells the story of a little boy who is eager to jump off the diving board now that he knows how to swim. However, he's not as confident when he gets to the pool with his father and little sister. We thought of words that identified Jabari's feelings. Ask me to tell you how Jabari felt at the beginning, middle and end of the story.
Today we talked about germs and how they spread. We read a story called A Germ's Journey, by Thom Rooke. In this story, we saw how germs are spread and what we can do so germs aren't spread. We watched this silly video about how to sneeze and cough into your sleeve. I hope you enjoy it!
If you have not done so already, please help your child find and bring back their Read to Me, Talk to Me book. We have rotated our class baskets and want to have all the books for the next class to borrow! Thanks!
Have a nice evening!
