Our class quilt is finished! We spread it out on the floor to examine it more closely. The squares are arranged alphabetically by person’s name, so we went through the alphabet and found each person’s square.
Chi-An (who put the quilt together) says: I liked how everyone did a square, even those people that don’t like drawing so much. We all contributed to the project. When we first started the project, I thought that each person would draw just themselves or maybe even just their face- but many people drew themselves with their best friend or their family or what they like to do best. It tells me that we’re really thinking about our place in the community.
Next we looked at the school website and looked at the blog entries for our class. We talked about how the blog is a way to share our wonderful work in class with other people in our community- family and friends, maybe some who live far away. Everyone was so excited to see pictures of themselves and their friends on the website that there was a lot of laughing. Some people had their feelings hurt because they thought the class was laughing at them. Teacher Nobie explained that laughter means a lot of things and in this case it was just excitement and not teasing. We’re so excited to share pictures of ourselves and our work!
In the library Teacher Tawnya read us two books about water.
One book was fiction and the other non-fiction.
After that, it’s time to pick books for the week!
Have a great weekend everyone, and stay dry!
