Today is World Smile Day! We had fun discussing fun facts about smiling, watching some short videos about smiling, and writing about why it is important to smile!

Literacy and Writing
This week our two essential questions we focused on were, "What is Culture?" and "What shapes our culture?" We talked about the 7 elements that make up a culture. We started reading about other cultures around the world in our reading groups. We will be working on this theme in our literacy block for the next couple weeks.
We are currently working on our Fall Benchmark papers! The kids have been working really hard on writing a narrative, expository, or persuasive piece. Next week we will be focusing on the last steps of the writing process, editing, revising, and publishing!
On Thursday we celebrated our PBIS celebration, we made it to Mexico. To celebrate, our first grade buddy's came into our classroom. We made crafts called sun pictures. We used paper plates and foil to make them. then we played Mexican games with a spinner and beans. To play, we spin and you land on something and you either put beans in the middle or you take beans from the middle until someone lands on the winning spot! We were very excited and our buddies were too.
