Today we did a quick review of the four words that are the foundation of our approach this year: knowledge, experience, tools and help.
Next, we wrote descriptive paragraphs about marshmallows and Smarties. We shared our writing with our partners. We then had a discussion and saw that the candy could be used as a metaphor for the ways we look a people.
We read the children's story Something Else and then saw how it could springboard a discussion about differences. Finally, we started a paragraph to explain whether we see ourselves as Smarties or marshmallows. We don't want any homework, so we will finish this writing on Monday.
Have a great weekend.
