We would like to share our artwork from a few weeks ago. It’s so vibrant and creative! We enjoyed working with pastels and coming up with interesting facial features that were bold and some even geometric.
What is Pink Shirt day all about? It all began when a boy in the 9th grade wore a pink shirt on his first day of school in Nova Scotia. He was made fun of and was picked on because of this. A few boys saw what happened and decided to do something about it. They bought 50 pink shirts and distributed them for others to wear. By the end of the week, most students in the school were wearing pink to show support for the boy who was made fun of.
We looked at several quotes today and discussed what they meant and why they are always important, not just today.
Here’s a look at some of the ones we discussed today:
Kindness–it costs nothing but means everything
We rise by lifting others
Kindness begins with me
Kindness is the mark we leave on the world
Throw kindness around like confetti
If you can anything, be kind
We designed some of our own pink-tshirts today too.
We revisited this poster called THINK. It’s a great acronym to remind ourselves how we can be kind to others when it comes to our words…
We’ve been pretty busy in our classroom learning all sorts of things such as how to tell time, exploring all about rocks and minerals, reading in the dark, playing in the snow, figuring out how to measure perimeter and classroom items using standard units of measurement, and so on.
Check out some snapshots of what we’ve been up to!
We have at last arrived at a much needed break! The excitement has been building in our classroom for the last few weeks and Christmas is now just around the corner. This Sunday we light the last purple candle.
Our class wishes you all a very blessed and holy Christmas and a happy New Year. Let the season of Christmas fill your hearts with joy and happiness. Even in these challenging times, we have so much to be grateful for.
