Howdy! Happy Year of The Snake! I hope that a slimy, slithery snake isn’t a bad omen for the year ahead! And I really don’t like snakes. That is all.
Today we celebrated Chinese New Year and had a blast! The monsters were so into it and loved learning about a different place! STORY TIME! When talking about China, one of my girls yelled out, “That’s me! China is in Asia!” (Her name is a continent!)
We kicked off our Snake day with the story, Ruby’s Wish! It’s a true story of a little girl who wants to go to university but only boys are allowed! At the end she gets to go and her wish comes true. We had a great time comparing ourselves to Ruby! This is a great story for anytime of the year! It’s perfect for compare and contrast and could be great for women’s history month or even as a tie in with black history month. You could compare Ruby Bridges to Ruby! Did you see how my brain made all of those connections just now?! Yep, that’s how I get it all done!
