Since I teach every other week in your child's class, I will post a new two week series at the start of that series.
Kindergarten & First Grade
We will be watching Howard and the Monkey on his Back - which is a tale about lying. Here is the actual book we will be watching:
We are doing lesson #7 from the Taxi Dog Series, www.taxidog.edu. Last we we watched parts of the Maxi TaxiSaurus video and identified how the character was feeling. Students then paired up and showed their partner one of the feelings with the puppet and tried to identify the feeling. This week we continue watching clips of the video and attempt to identify the perspective of the character in the video.
Fourth & Fifth Grade
Things are a bit discombobulated for these grades right now due to SBAC testing. If I am able to get into your child' class we will do fixed vs growth mindset work to help them keep a positive attitude during test taking season.
