It is so nice to have all of my 1C Superstars back in the classroom!! I hope that everyone had a wonderful Winter Break! We got to choose new seats today and will get to pick a new spot EVERY morning we come to school!
We have been talking about writing New Years Resolutions this week. We want to make the world a more awesome place by doing something for others or by making ourselves better! We started this out by reading a fun book called, Squirrel's New Years Resolution.
We worked with a partner to write all the story elements from this story including characters, setting, problem and solutions, and even our favorite parts!
We also watched a great video from our favorite kid, Kid President! We gathered ideas for writing a New Years Resolution from his video and then made a class circle map of his ideas and then more that we came up with on our own.
We started our next IB Unit this week: Where We Are In Place and Time. To get interested and "hooked" into this unit we watched a short scene from one of our favorite movies, Up. We watched the timeline of the life that Carl and Ellie share together from their childhood to their old age.
Then we looked at our IB Board and noticed some photos of some people we sort of recognized from history!
We looked at our central idea and took it apart to make sense out of what we will be learning in this unit. Our central idea is "Personal histories influence our ways of life."
We talked together about what this means and then came up with questions about our new unit. We wrote down ghings that we are wondering on a post-it and then stuck them up on our "I wonfpder..." wall.
We had a blast playing in the snow today!!
