I’m not CRABBY . . . it’s FRIDAY!
Yesterday we read these books.
What Are You So Grumpy about has the funniest, quirkiest illustrations. It covers all things that might make a youngster grumpy; like no kid cereal left so you have to eat “boring, tasteless grown up cereal”. Or not having any clean clothes so you have to wear all that doesn’t fit and look like you’re wearing “Dad’s golfing clothes.” Or getting a surprise gift in the mail and it ends up being “boring underwear”. In the end, it’s hard to be grumpy when someone makes you laugh and forget what you were grumpy about.
Similarly, Noodles from I’m So Grumpy (sorry, no link for this one because the only one listed on Amazon was for $350!!!!) is having a tough day. Nothing is going his way. But those tickles in the end help him forget all about it.
We talked about what it might mean when someone says, “Ah… you are a perfect little pearl.” “And what it means if you are being “crabby“. Then we wrote about things that make us crabby and how that makes us feel. Then we made our oysters & crabs to put up in the tide pool that nearly killed me.
It’s WAY too crowded of a bulletin board. With the new, definitely not improved class-size, I’m thinking I will need to shrink the size of the crab next time around.
Our classroom is filled with fun sea crafts and writing. You can see more of them here.
