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!

We call sticking your tounge out your “thinking face.” My daughter does it when she's concentrating. She was playing in the pool at Great Wolf Lodge using her hands to move the water. Her tongue was out the whole time!!! 🙂
Love!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Your students are soooo luck to have you Mr. Greg :0)
