In social studies we are currently focusing on authority. We have been reading a book called "Orb and Effy". It is an adventure about 'Bubble Land' and the bubbles learn all about rules and how to pick great leaders. This week we are focusing on characteristics of a good leader. We created our own bubble land leaders and wrote why we think they would be a great leader (including characteristics). We practiced activating our schema by thinking about times when we liked how others treated us and when we didn't like how we were treated. Then we brainstormed a list of characteristics we'd like to see in leaders which we used to help us in our writing.
Don't forget that this week we will be having our first Non-Fiction Friday! If you haven't sent in a plastic cup or mug for your child, please make sure to do so before Friday. Don't worry about the lemonade at this point as we have plenty for now! Also, there are some direct giving parties coming up over the next few weeks. Details are in the 'Sched
Thanks, and have a great week!
