Today was a typical Monday morning except I got to school a bit earlier then normal for me to get photos of classroom.
The opening activity; backward circles. I love this picture! She was so focused on it before I left the classroom. Great job!
It’s a penguin habitat along the east classroom wall.
I was finally able to get the snowman photographed from the homework assignment from 2 weeks ago. With the winter weather we had, she turned it in on Monday the 23rd and they were hung on Friday the 27th.
“Jesus Loves the Little Children” front board in class.
Each child “reported” to the whole class, on a different country of their choosing. After going to the library and looking at a huge book with all 280 countries of the world; Isabel choose Denmark as her snowman’s country.

I love them all! The individuality of each one is awesome! What a great way to get kids into early book reporting and research. Isabel enjoyed doing it and gathering research for her country that she choose. We found a small book on Denmark at the library and I went over just a few of the highlights with her about it. A few days after talking about Denmark for her project, Denmark was in the news, about their queen Margrethe II. Who was celebrating 40 years of reign in her country! We got to watch the carriage procession on T.V. That was cool!
After class Isabel was really excited because her 4th tooth fell out! (see this post)
Nothing else was said about the day, except that she did MAP testing instead of going to recess. For the next 3 consecutive Mondays, she’ll be doing mid-year MAP testing.
