Our evening entertainment!! Woo hoo!! These sweet guys from Tennessee don’t know what to think of our gnats! They have been working 16 hour shifts for 7 days to get our power back on. We are so thankful! #hurricanemichael
I delivered an army of emotions peg people to our kindergarten team this morning! Each person has an upset/angry/nervous face on one side and a happier, more calm face on the other side. We’re reading Wemberly Worried next week, and children will act out the story and their own using the peg people in the block center. Other students will offer items to comfort them and hopefully the peg people will change their emotions. Most children this age use happy or sad to describe their emotions. Other children communicate feelings through their behavior. Being able to put a more specific name to how they are feeling is a powerful thing, and is a big step toward helping them regulate their big feelings. I can’t take credit for the idea, I owe Mrs. Dona for that, but making these was so much fun! They aren’t perfect, because 16x6 is a lot and I really don’t think the kids will care! Tier 2 Vocabulary: EMOTIONS, COMFORT and any emotion word you can think of. 😞😊😬🤗🤔🤪😡😌🤨🙂😢🙂😫🤗 How are you feeling today?
We hadn’t been to the library in months, but I needed to renew my card. We have so many books already (I taught/coached for 11 years before I had Adelle), and we’re a totally obsessed with @epicbooksforkids right now- especially for books on a 1st grade level. And we have the library app. BUT- there’s nothing like a good library stack!! 📚🐛🤓
Computer -Adelle, age 6 Isn’t this just incredible? Sometimes they are brilliant artists, and sometimes they argue over cardboard boxes and melt down about the Georgia game not aligning with their schedules. It’s Friday. We’re tired. Here’s to a weekend full of snuggling, reading, and creating with a little football thrown in! Go Dawgs!
