Today we read a book called Nobody's Perfect, by David Elliott. This book is about a little boy who tells about people in his life who are not perfect, as he is learning that nobody is perfect. He tells about his sister Gigi, his friend Jack and even his mom and how they are not perfect. It might interest you to know that I stopped when the narrator said his mother was not perfect, and I asked the class if there mother was perfect. Everyone in the class said their mother is perfect! As we read on, the narrator felt his mother was not perfect because she put him in time-out for letting the dog sleep on his bed, and he felt the dog should have been in time-out instead. Ask me to tell you about the characters and what they did that was not perfect. I'll show you my Nobody's Perfect paper. The story ends with the little boy saying nobody is perfect, but they come close, like when his mom listens to him, that's perfect enough! We read this book to think more deeply about characters to find evidence in the story or illustrations that support our thinking.
We played a game today in math called Mind Reader. This is a game that involves deductive reasoning as children get rid of items that don't follow the rule. We used buttons and I gave clues that would eliminate buttons until one button was left.
We had a visit from Mrs. Kanter today and learned more about the people at our school and their responsibilities. We also talked about the responsibilities the children have at school. Ask me to tell you about two people that work at our school and what their responsibilities are.
We had a fire drill today and did a great job watching where we were walking, and moving quickly to our spot. We also received recognition on the announcements about our cafeteria behavior yesterday. Our class was recognized for showing respect to the adults and other children in the cafeteria.
I have updated our website with more curriculum tabs as well as adding a new video on the ISFP, Interesting Stuff for Parents, about self-control.
Have a great weekend!
