Underneath they wrote their Earth day pledge.
The kids also made their own earth by coloring a paper plate blue with coloring pencils and then used a green paint handprint to represent a helping hand. This was used to decorate their writing.
I'm looking forward to next week's unit - Pond Life. Let's see if anyone brings tadpoles in to observe!
I also found out this week that I will be moving to kindergarten next year. I'm excited. My first year teaching was in kindergarten. I started packing up some of my stuff today. It is amazing how much can be acculumated in such a short amount of time (and the dust!). I'm a little sad to be leaving the land of first grade. I had said before that if I ever moved, I wanted to go back to kindergarten. I just didn't expect it to be so soon. But here's to an adventure in kindergarten! :)
