I went with it from the emotional standpoint. We talked about feelings, and how Ramon's brother hurt his feelings when he made fun of his artwork. We discussed how important it is for us to build one another up instead of pulling each other down. Then we talked about the Golden Rule, and everyone now knows that they should treat others the way they want to be treated. I wrote several emotions from the book on the board, and they picked one to illustrate. They then held up the pics and their friends guessed which emotion that had chosen. I feel like this was a successful lesson. The kids really seemed to enjoy it!
First Graders reviewed the colors of the rainbow and showed what they know by creating these beautiful rainbow drawings!
The boy that drew the last one handed me his paper and then said, "Wait! I need to label this!" I told him he didn't have to do that, but he was adamant!
Kids, what 'ya gonna do? ;)
Have you done any exciting lessons on the color spectrum? I'd love to hear from you in the comments.
Hope you guys are having a great time back at school! We have been at it for a while now, but soon we will have another week long break!
