We are trying to ease back into things coming back after Spring Break.
I know this video has been making the rounds-I even saw it on my news program. But we've been starting the mornings with it and what a way to begin with an upbeat message in our heads!
For their first writing assignment after coming back, I asked them to write a creative reason to answer the question: why do ladybugs have spots? I like to do exercises in creativity like this every once in a while for two reasons. 1) I think it's a good way to get them to practice thinking outside the box and 2) I selfishly like to read all the different answers they can come with! :)
