Today, our class celebrated Constitution Day. Although they asked why we were in school on a holiday, and why we weren't having a party, I think they still had fun!
We read We The Kids, an adorable book that breaks down the preamble into kid-friendly terms. After that, we talked about laws and rights, and the laws and rights that we in place in our classroom. Then, we completed this writing activity about some of the rights that we have.
We have the right to pick our own books during Read to Self time.
We have the right to pick our food at lunch. (She tried to think of foods for every color!)
We have the right to pick activities on the playground.
Once they caught on to the idea of rights, they really enjoyed it! And their writing turned out so cute!
We are continuing out alphabet books unit this week with Eating the Alphabet by Lois Ehlert. We will talk about our favorite foods, healthy foods, and do a scavenger hunt for healthy foods in grocery ads. Along with that, we are working hard to finish up assessments before we send home progress reports this Friday. It feels like school just started and we are already sending home 5 week progress reports! Time has flown by! Before we know it, it will be Christmas!
Happy Constitution Day!
