Columbus Day exploring...
Cutest explorers you ever did see right? OK you are thinking where is my kid. Someone was out but then we had some rely release kids too. I had to quick get a class shot before anyone else went home. We talked about what an explorer is and even used this from Wonderopolis http://wonderopolis.org/wonder/where-is-the-next-frontier/ The only bad thing was the video would't play through the school filters. We used some scientific inquiry to make a sail for an egg carton ship. The kids did great and had so much fun watching their boats float across. Watch this, too cute, just love them!
My name is Jeanne Wright and this is my 22nd year teaching in Volusia County, Florida. I am honored to be the 2009 Volusia County Teacher of the Year. That year I was also one of five finalists for the Florida Teacher of the Year. I am National Board Certified since 1999 in Early Childhood Generalist. I look forward to a wonderful year with my first graders!
