Today, we read What Do You Do With An Idea by Kobi Yamada. This beautiful picture book is about a young child and his journey of being afraid to share his idea to becoming confident, feeding his idea, and allowing it to grow. After we read the story we went outside and studied bubbles! The kids were charged with the task to identify ways bubbles are like ideas. They came up with many great ideas that revolve around themes such as respect, effort, and kindness (a picture to come!) Tomorrow we will use their comparisons along with new ideas to create classroom expectations and norms.
The year is off to a great start!
