We had an upside down day today since I had to be in meetings all morning. So the children had a substitute did some math review and word work. They also visited the state of Utah in our Read Across America. The children listened to a story called The Wheat Doll. This story is set in the late 1800's and tells about what pioneer life was like as it tells the story of Mary Ann and her doll made from wheat. Ask me to tell you what happens when Betty gets lost during a storm.
This marking period, one of our TASS skills is originality. We talked about what originality looks like, and looked at an example of a traditional ballet dance and an original dance to the same music. We looked at how the same story of the dying swam from Saint Saens' Carnival of the Animals. Below you will find the clips I shared with the students today. They wanted you to see them too!
Have a nice evening!
