On the way to school it was snowing and raining at the same time. Isabel thought this was so interesting and wanted to know how that could happen. I tried to explain it as best as I could and it seemed to answer her questions about how it was even possible.
After arriving at the classroom, Isabel noticed the colorful daisies someone had brought for Mrs. W. I spoke with Mrs. W briefly and she said she was feeling much better and was glad to be back. I didn’t want to pry so I kept it at that and told her I was glad she was feeling better and was back to class.
Later when I arrived to pick Isabel up from school. I was delighted to see her and Makayla talking with Ezzra (special helper today) about her show and tell today. Before leaving school the two girls, Isabel and Makayla, gave each other a huge hug and said goodbye. It was so sweet and cute, I have to chuckle just writing about it. When I asked about her school day today, she told me all about what happened during snack time when she had wanted to sit next to Makayla. She said she had an idea (about fixing the problem) and got to sit kitty corner to Makayla instead of right next to her. Since the 2 girls got to spend so much time together over the weekend, they have really bonded with each other! So great to see!
The Bible story today was from Jonah 1-4 and was the story of Jonah and how he disobeyed God and tried to ran away from God.
The class worked on their Monday morning journal writing, they worked on the letter “S” for snake. They also worked on their 5 senses; sight, hearing, taste, smell and touch.
She got a pamphlet with all this information about each…
Picture of each sense.
Then descriptions of each one… taste and smell.
Sight, touch and hearing. When I asked her later at home, if she could remember them, she got them all except for touch.
When I asked what more she did for her day she mentioned Dr. Seuss’ Birthday coming up and they were going to celebrate with a small party or some other celebration. They had painted Dr. Seuss hats and when I spotted them drying on the counter, Isabel said that we weren’t allowed to take them home yet because they were going to use them for the party. I thought that was cool.
For recess they played relay games in the gym and duck-duck-goose because it had been snowing all morning long.
The special helper today was Ezzra. For show and tell, Ezzra brought a white dog, that had a special bag to carry it in and had lots of accessories too. Isabel also said that BOTH Ezzra’s Mommy and Daddy were the helpers today in class. For snack Ezzra brought to share cupcakes; with red, blue, yellow, and green frosting on them and juice to drink.
