Today we studied artwork by Romero Britto. We discussed the patterns and colors we noticed in this pop art piece. We also thought about the message Romero Britto wanted us to get. Ask me to tell you what I think the message in this picture is.
We also read a classic Dr. Seuss book. We listened to And to Think That I Saw it On Mulberry Street. This is the story of a little boy whose father asks him each day what he saw on the way to school. One day, thinking the wagon being pulled by a horse was not very interesting, the little boy invents a story that he finds much more exciting. Ask me to tell you about his story. We know the little boy used his imagination and exaggerated the story!
We were inspired by the story and decided to write our own stories. We wrote about what we saw one day on Bells Mill Road. First we thought of ideas, then we sketched a picture. We added many details to our picture to make it more interesting. Then we wrote about the picture using adjectives, describing words, and exaggerated it just as the little boy did in the story. We will work on these stories over the next few days.
In math, we worked with decomposition once again. We will continue to work with finding ways to break numbers down into parts.
Thanks to everyone who sent back the blue form indicating whether your child would be returning to Bells Mill next year. This information is important when we make class lists and plan for next year, so if you haven't already done so, please return this as soon as possible. Thanks!
Have a nice evening!
