Our New Classroom Friend. 

Today we introduced our new classroom friend into the class, a lion head bunny! As a class we discovered that the bunny has brown fur, brown eyes, and wiggles his nose. 

We asked the children what we should do when the bunny arrives into the classroom and these were their responses!

  • Ines: We should be so quiet so we don't scare him!
  • Tessa: We can give him carrots and water.
  • Dylan: We can play with him.
  • Della: We can pet it one at a time.
  • Cole: My sister wants to meet the bunny.
  • Mishaan: My brother likes bunnies.
  • Arun: We should give him lettuce.

Language and Literacy 

  • Books
    • Marshmallow - A story about a bunny. It is a long book, so we will continue reading it in the coming days.
  • Songs
    • Get up and dance
    • Freeze dance
  • Feelings Chart
    • Today, we introduced the feelings chart. It is on the fridge, and each student's name is on velcro on the side. At any point in the day, they can place their name on the chart and move it to different emotions. The emotions include ecstatic, happy, sad, scared, angry, and enraged. Most students were ecstatic or happy today! But it is okay for students to have any feeling, as long as they express it in a safe way. The feelings chart is a helpful tool to talk about emotions and a great outlet for expressing emotions.
