We continued with our light representations today with the introduction of wire. It was wonderful to see how the wire fascinated the children-the ways in which they molded it and thought about what it would represent. Wire is also now available in our art studio for future use! The students also had access to the beautiful junk box to add details to their representations.

For word study today, we used words we have learned to put together a sentence. We've worked on labeling a picture of ourselves with our names and the word "me." Today, we used a sentence that the class is familiar with from one of our shared reading poems--"I am me." The students drew a picture to express this and were encouraged to write the sentence to show this.
Tomorrow is March! I updated the important dates page for March dates!
