The kids watched the Gaston song from Beauty and the Beast, and Snow White’s whistle while you work. The students were able to pick out different gender stereotypes of what culture tells us boys or girls should be.

Social- The students finished their prairie landscape picture. If they were not finished, they needed to take it home for homework. Their job was to draw a prairie landscape that was inspired by “If You’re Not From the Prairie” by David Bouchard. They are supposed to write one sentence explaining to me their prairie landscape picture.

*** thanks to Megan who reminded me to update Raz Kids with the chikdren’s new reading levels. There were quite a few kids who haven’t logged on in a while, or at all. This is an amazing free resource that our parent council has bought for our school. Don’t forget to have your child login if you want some extra leveled reading at home!

Quiet Time- Madeline chose a book for us to read.

Twitter/Blog- We read some of our new blog comments from our blogging buddies today.

Social- Since we have been talking about advertisements and media messages, today I read the students the book called “Good Pictures Bad Pictures”. This book talks about how sometimes kids can come across bad pictures on TV, iPads, devices, and in magazines etc. It talks about what is private, and how they should never take pictures of private parts or see pictures of other people’s private parts. We discussed how sometimes there might be inappropriate videos that pop up on Youtube, or somewhere else and what they should do. The book gives the directions of TURN RUN TELL. The child should turn their eyes from the picture, run away and tell a trusted adult. This is a great resource for protecting children against pornography and other inappropriate things they might come across online. There is also a version of this book for older kids. Something to think about if you have older children and want to bring up this conversation. Let me know if you have any questions! I’d be happy to answer them!
