Today we had an extra long circle as we talked about the job of the leaves. Did you know that they can make their own peanut butter and jelly sandwiches? Not really, but they do make their own food for the entire plant. After talking about which leaves we eat, we completed our library page for our community books. This takes a while and can be tough on those not use to having to do something they aren’t interested in, but all 15 completed their pages!
Outside, Marya was busy with the hustle and bustle of the majority of our class playing outside. There were kids working on the “tree house”, kids digging in the sand box, and kids playing their favorite slide game, crash the truck. This game evolves over the school year and today was an attempt to use one truck to rush down the slide and crash into another truck at the bottom of the slide hard enough to make it drive off of the slide.
Inside, I was hoping to have kids write in their journals about their plants. Unfortunately, after having them write about the library, they were definitely done writing. I had three girls I asked if they were ready to write who agreed and completed a page in their journals, but I couldn’t coax anyone else. Maybe on Monday!
We ended our day reading about the dentist as we will be visiting Pediatric Dentistry on Monday. My thanks to Michelle and Marya for all of their help.
