This past week we have been focusing on how to be good citizens!
After learning what a citizen is, we worked to come up ideas relaying things we could do to be good citizens of our communities!
Yes, yes....I made a boo boo and used a sentence strip to cover it up rather than re-do the whole poster! You can barely tell right?!
Here are some examples of what my kiddos wrote on their post-its:
The next day we put our ideas into action. I shared with the kiddos that not only were we going to learn about being good citizens, we ARE going to be good citizens!
We went about writing these letters to the our parents sharing our plans.
We discussed how one way to be a good citizen is by giving back to others in our community. Thus, we started collecting cans...and after just two days...here is where we are...
I think I am going to need another container! We will be collecting them until Thanksgiving break when I shared with my students that I will be bringing them to the pantry. Each morning we add tally marks representing the cans we bring it....good tie in to math too!
This week we also learned about what a law is and how good citizens follow the laws of their community!
We then created this class book reflecting laws that we follow in our community each day!
"The Superkids Always Follow Laws"
Here are a few pages that were created:
Okay all...use your picture clues...what do you think this law is?
(If you guessed putting on your seatbelt, you are correct!)
And of course....we should not steal from houses or stores!
We will be continuing our government unit this coming week, so I'll share more as we get to it!
Happy Veteran's Day!
