Friday we joined in with National Dot Day.  This is a day that is centered around "Making your mark" in the world.  Author Peter Reynolds of The Dot wrote an adorable story about a little girl who learns to express herself through art.  This story allows us to tap into a growth mindset and challenges us to"make a mark and see where it takes us!"

Today we had our first Woodsy Wednesday! This morning we went outside before the scorching heat hit. Prior to going out, we were inspired by the program Mystery Doug where we talked about curiosity and wonder. We then headed out to ponder some of our own questions inspired by the great outdoors! Some of our questions were..."How do rattlesnakes poison you?" "How do vines grow on buildings?" "Why do bees have such a big stinger?" And so many more...!

Yesterday we talked about the wonderful flexible seating we have in our classroom.  This helps us meet the needs of all our learners! We talked about expectations while we use these during the day.  We pick a seat that will help our body to do its best learning!

I was hoping to have blogged this weekend but I had some technical difficulties.  We have been having such an amazing time in class.  We ended our week with our first birthday celebration on Friday! Happy birthday Drew!! We had popsicles and had a compliment circle, where we passed along some love towards Drew!
