Week 8 - Specials

Week 8 Specials

What’s happening in Art Class!
Peter H. Reynolds – “SKY COLOR” describes the thought process of a child named Marisol when she is faced with a dilemma of painting the sky in a school mural. Marisol, as well as the people around her, considers herself to be a true artist. In the fashion of an artist, she wants everything to be just perfect in her works of art. She also encourages others to explore their artistic side as well.

Marisol is excited when her class is allowed to paint the mural in the school’s library. Everything is going well as the students work together to brainstorm, design, and draw out the concept of the mural. The trouble begins when Marisol cannot find the color of the sky that she feels is most accurate—blue. Over the next pages, Marisol’s thought process is modeled through her riding the bus home, thinking on the porch, dreaming, and waking up to a rainy day. She finds the true sky color and is able to finish her portion of the mural with great success.

This book will be great to introduce critical thinking and thinking outside the proverbial box. Students should be encouraged to think about the world beyond their comfort zone and consider other possibilities.

 

WELCOME TO SOCIAL EMOTIONAL LEARNING!!

The year is off to a great start in SEL.   The students have been learning all about self- awareness and embracing their strengths and challenges.  Self-awareness is one of the five core competencies of the CASEL.

What is happening in P.E. Class?!?

On Fridays in class the students get to participate in stations! Each station allows the kids to do different activities that they really LOVE!

Station 1: Xbox Kinect station. In this station students participate by playing different Kinect Sports games on the Xbox. They allow the students to exercise and move while keeping them challenged!

Station 2: The students get to climb the rock wall and try to make it to the end!

Station 3: Students are learning the correct form to shoot a basketball, the younger students get to use the mini basketballs. Great Shots!

Station 4: Students are playing Rock, Paper, and Scissors Hula Hoop! At this station the students start on opposite sides and hop through the hoops till they meet. When they meet they play Rock, Paper, Scissors, the winner keeps hopping if they make it to the end of the hoops they earn a point for their team!
Take a look at the photo album.
