When I student taught, my supervising teacher told me that I needed to learn to beg, borrow, and steal. So this idea comes from one of Lou's teachers and I stole it. I think all the other girls have used it too. It's well stolen now. I'm just following some good advice.
It's based on Jim Gill's book and song, May There Always Be Sunshine. After I read/sang the book, the kids sang/read it with me. Then we talked about what they would like there to always be. I wrote it down and sent them with their page to work around the room. They spent several minutes working and then returned their page to me. I just love how independent they are!
They came up with some good things! This was such a fun class book.
I read/sang it to them and they joined me the second time.
Throughout the day and rest of the week, they asked for us to all sing it again several more times.
Love this tiger!
