My title is what one of the Kaiser first grade boys wrote about me this week. You all understand I am a poor speller but that is his spelling not mine.
For workshop the whole class was doing picture writing. They chose a picture taken at an event, glued it to the paper, and then wrote about the specific picture or the event in general. This time they were doing a follow up on a visit from Ranger James. This took place in January 30, so some details were a little fuzzy for all of us. I got my phone and pulled up my blog post to help. Was it a gecko, a salamander, or a newt Ms. H held? It was a live newt.
We all remembered the Ranger blindfolded Ms. H and had her identify objects by touch and asking yes and no questions. I told the children I would have thrown the live newt and run screaming from the room. They all thought that was funny.
I was walking around helping where needed and saw my picture on one of the papers. N had written: Ms. Appel would have thrown the newt. She would have run away screaming. Ms. Appel thinks she is preshcious. I asked him what that meant and he said, "You said you're precious." I have no idea what I said to have him come up with precious. It is his story so I left and moved on to the next child.
