Cinco de Mayo

Today was Cinco de Mayo, and in my inner-first-grade-teacher fashion, I decided to forego the Social Studies book for today and focus on the Battle of Puebla instead.

After we talked about the purpose of the celebration today, we viewed and learned about the woodcarvings of unique animals and creatures made in the state of Oaxaca, in Mexico. The students created their own pictures reminiscent of the very colorful folk art.

Our flowers that we planted on Earth Day are growing amazingly! We just planted them two weeks ago today.
And we got more things for Teacher Appreciation Week! The PTP ordered special A+ cookies for us, and gave us glass containers (that have our school's name on it and a cute teacher quote) filled with kisses!
(I got a little hungry on my way up the stairs... haha!)
