We finally had a full week! Wow! The kids seemed ready to be back and while a whole week of indoor recess was not the most fun, they did a great job. We began our Hidden Curriculum topic of nose picking this week and talked about where and how we could pick our nose if we really need to. 1) In the bathroom stall 2) With tissue and 3) wash hands after. Many things in the hidden curriculum (unwritten rules) are not things you absolutely cannot do, but when and where you can. There is a time and place for nose picking--in private! Then we completed an acrostic poem of our names on rainbow stripes of paper we glued to a cloud. These will be hanging in the classroom for us to "Think Spring"! We began our March Madness Bracket of the Book Challenge that will be school-wide for March. We read When Sophie Gets Angry, Really, Really Angry. Monday they will vote on this or another book. Voting will continue until there is one winner at the end of the month. And naturally, ours are all about emotions and feelings (Mrs. Reece and I will be doing a class vote). What a fun week we had! Look for the brackets in our photo tab. Have a great weekend and hope to see you at the Auction tonight!
