Today was the final day of February. I like how it's ending in rain. I hope it continues. We could use more rain in California. Here's our kindergarten class record of February's weather:
As you can see, sunny weather won the race with cold and rainy weather a distant tie for second place.
In our work with the Toolbox project, we've been talking about feelings. Words to describe emotions are really worth discussing, especially with boys because, well, most boys seem to need a little more help navigating emotional realms than most girls do. We read a book called How Are You Peeling? Food with Moods by Saxton Freymann and Joost Elffers, published by Scholastic. This book sparked some good discussions about feelings.
We also sang the Toolbox Project song about feelings, a good update of an old classic, "If You're Happy and You Know It."
A good somewhat rainy day in kindergarten.
Be well. See you in March!
