I love when a great lesson just happens!
Each day during our morning meeting I let the kids share one thing that happened today, yesterday, or will happen tomorrow. One of the little guys was sharing how yesterday he begged and begged his mom for a puppy and she said no because his sisters are allergic. Well of course this revelation inspired almost every other kiddo to share a story about begging for something…it is first grade after all! Well then one of my little sweeties surprised me by saying he had a connection to a book he had just read. He told us that he had a book about begging for a dinosaur in his “Just Right Bag”. He pulled out “Can I Have a Tyrannosaurus Rex Dad? Can I Please?” At this point another sweetie grabs “Can I Have a Stegosaurus Mom? Can I Please? out of her “Just Right Bag”.
I decided this would be a great opportunity to talk about writing a persuasive letter.
We read both books and then set out to write our own letters. They were a hoot! These little people have persuading (aka begging) down to an art form. I have to tell you they kept me laughing all day!!
I am sure going to miss this darling bunch!!
We just used letter writing paper I already had on hand.

Seven days to go…I promise I’m not counting
