Jackson Elementary second graders had fun with the silly story, The Book With No Pictures this week! They made up their own definitions of the nonsense words and drew pictures for the book! This activity is from Being Mrs. Barnes’ TPT store. I adapted her activity sheet to add made up words from the book El libro sin dibujos for the bilingual classes. Fun!
Pre-K created an African American musician “quilt” in the Jackson Library! As they worked, we talked about Nina Simone and played her “I’m Feeling Good” song. Then we used Liz Buchanan‘s primary version of the song as a chant for the kids to sing the “I’m Feeling Good” lyric at the end of each line while they worked. Fun! Thanks to Liz for adapting the song (linked below) to make it choral for Pre-K! They sang ‘I’m feeling good’ for the second part of each verse. The kids loved it. I found a Spanish version of the original song for the bilingual Pre-K class to sing. I have a note to purchase the Nina Simone: Jazz Legend and Civil-Rights Activist book for next year!
