We talked about being brave spellers and taking risks as learners this week. We certainly can't be perfect at everything we do... and if we constantly try to be perfect, we may never get a chance to experience things that are new. Sometimes our greatest learning comes when we bravely attempt things that may be more challenging for us. On Wednesday, we read The OK Book by Amy Krouse Rosenthal. It emphasized the lesson, that being just "OK" is really ok! Additionally, the illustrations in this book were very unique and simple. The letters "oK" also form the shape of a person. The children loved looking for the "oK" person on every page!
Here are some of the thoughts some students shared about this book:
"I liked the page when he sleeps and he dreams of being a grown-up and he's still not good at everything." ~Sameera
"I liked this book because the word "oK" looks like a person on each page!" ~Deacon
"It teaches us that we are not good at everything. That's ok!" ~Lando
