In Social Studies we read a book called I Can Be President, Too! This book by Yanitzia Canetti has young children telling something about themselves that would make them a good president. The children discuss taking care of their family, being respectful, determined, honest, organized, friendly, generous, responsible, fair, solving problems, taking care of the Earth, being a role model, working for peace and keeping promises. The book illustrated these characteristics in ways the children can relate, showing children doing these things.
In math, we learned about comparing length and width of objects. We used a 10 cube stick to compare the length of objects in the classroom. The children learned how to measure by making sure they lined up the object and measuring stick so they were even. We found some that were longer and shorter as well and practiced stating whether the object was longer or shorter than the measuring stick.
Have a nice evening! Enjoy this beautiful fall weather!
