Daily affirmations are a very powerful way to set your intentions and to remain in a positive headspace. Being mindful of all that we have and all that we are can help us build our resiliency and face daily challenges and frustrations. Today we introduced our classroom affirmations. We will check in with these daily and remind ourselves how awesome, strong and special that we are.
I am Strong and Determined.
I Choose My Attitude.
I Am Ready to Learn.
Crosby figures out that he can make a pyramid by stacking the kinetic sand into a pile and then gently squishing the sides with one of our square tiles. This sparks a conversation about 2D and 3D objects. We talk about triangles and pyramids, circles and spheres and squares and cubes. What a great discovery!
Our letter C scavenger hunt in the classroom yields a pretty great sound circle!
Thanks for sharing your sock dragon with us Isabelle...so creative!
Conor, the human Pokeball!
"Look, Ms. Christina, I'm a bird! A bald eagle actually!"
Woah! That's quite a garage!
During quiet choices, friends use a little help from Ms. Katie to draw a realistic Spiderman. How's that for introducing meaningful technology into the classroom? :)
We wrap up our Coral Reef exploration with a book of all that we've learned over the last two weeks. Take a look in your child's backpack for their book. We purposefully invited kiddos to take it home and work on it so that they could share their learning with you. Enjoy!
