September 19 is Talk Like A Pirate Day! This is a day that the boys love!! I also love this day. We learned about pirates, got some awesome pirate gear and of course got our picture taken!!! Check out our day below!
I love Dot Day! It is a day based on the book by Peter H Reynolds! It is an amazing book! It teaches the children about having a growth mindset! How important it is to have one and that they can do anything they put their mind too! It is such an important message!
To set the stage, the room was decorated with dots!!!
We read and discussed the book , The Dot! Then we made our mark everywhere with our dots! We made dots on coffee filters and watched them splatter!
We made our mark on big white dots using our smelly markers. These are our reminders that we can do anything. These are hanging on our ceiling so when we start to feel like we can't do it then we look up and see our mark!!!
The kids got dot markers and made a dot and created something with a dot!
I found the old fashioned candy buttons so they got to eat a dot!
They decorated their own sit spot and made their mark'
And at the end of the day, they all got a certificate and a pair of polka dot glasses!
I almost forgot and of course we got our picture taken!!
September 17 is Constitution Day! This is a day when we focus on and learn about the Preamble of the Constitution! The kids had a ablast!
We read the book, We the Kids written by David Catrow. This book is the actual preamble but it is illustrated with kid friendly pictures so the children can understand what each sentence of the preamble means!
After reading and discussing the book, we wrote our own class Constitution. We wrote and signed this wearing a colonial hat and using a peacock feather pen!
We then drew ourselves as the signers of the Constitution and we hung our constitution and our portraits out in the hallway! It looks amazing!
Pictures are a must in these kind of days! So we got our picture taken wearing white wig and a colonial hat! Of course we had the American Symbols in the background!!!
to end our lesson, we each got a peacock feather pencil and a piece of parchment paper and we wrote the Constitution! It was a great day!
