As we finish up this week are moving onto transitioning from back to school to feelings and friendship.  Yesterday we read The Recess Queen and  created a character web to describe the two main characters in the story, Katie Sue and Mean Jean.


Then we used the character web to illustrate one of the characters.  We also talked about how Katie Sue showed kindness to Mean Jean even though Jean was being a bully.  In some of the illustrations you can see Katie Sue with a jump rope and Jean bullying other kids and looking angry!

As we continue with our “Who Am I, Where Do I Go From Here” theme in K-1 class (aka our All About Me Theme); we have begun to talk about our feelings and how we describe them.  We talked about how we can write out our feelings and describe them in different ways.  We read “Sometimes I Feel Like a Storm Cloud” by Lezlie Evans.  In this story the main character describes different way she feels.  She describes herself as feeling like a tornado, or feeling like a newborn kitten.


Then students described their own feelings by writing what they sometimes feel like.  Following the picture and writing; they created a paper plate face that shows their feeling on their face.

In first picture the student writes “panda”; the second picture the student writes “sleepy elephant”.

On the paper plates they used various arts & crafts supplies to create the accompanying paper plate faces.

The first picture the student writes “a mad bear”; second picture the student writes, “a happy cat”, and a “happy giraffe” was written on the third picture.

Students were invited to think of things or animals that made them think of the specific feelings that they sometimes feel.
