Miraculous Ladybug

Miralaxulous Ladybug

Uh huh.  This picture reminds me of how I was dressed for school today and how I sometimes respond confidently, red being a power color.  Each day  we recite our Pledge, Promise and Student Creed with gusto!  So I could have passed for the Miraculous Ladybug today……or in another kid’s words,  as “Watermellon Woman.” Either way, I was seeing spots, if not spitting seeds.

Zoinks!  I  jumped into action in an outdoor learning classroom by attempting to prevent   my students  from burning holes in things with magnifying glasses.  What a beautiful day for an activity I dubbed  S.S.I, or Science Scene Investigation.  I made it up, sort of like the true story of Amber formation on ancient Guido trees.  Love tapping into the creative tree sap.  I borrowed the SSI idea from prime time’s CSI and pitched it. It went well out in the sunshine.

I’m trying to keep kids as excited and engaged in learning as I intersperse bursts of instruction AND of  Sage testing to the schedule. So today, besides making amazing scented coffee filter paper roses,   the kids measured the perimeter of a 36X28 inch polygon on a self selected patch of soil or grass, staked it with plastic cultlery or sticks, barrior taped it off and then recorded observed data.  I think we should………….plant something tomorrow, as well as continue reading the Oragami Yoda book  🙂

Good times.  I am grateful for many things.
