Most of us have a favorite... it may be that cute trio of pigs, the sumptuous looking gingerbread man we really wish wouldn't escape or that ridiculously panicked chicken watching the sky like we are for rain right now - either way, we all know them - Folk and Fairy Tales!
They are such a comforting tradition that I decided: this time of year, as we push through these rainy months, is a cozy time for some traditional reads.
That means that for our Kindergarten and 1st Grade classes, the coming 4 weeks are all about Folk Tales: we're covering everything from how & why they came about; the lessons learned, their commonalities and finally - the traditions they echo all over the world.
Did you know for example, that there may be as many as 800 version of Cinderella from around the world, dating back to 850 AD?!
Meanwhile our 2nd Graders began a five week block of lessons around Digital Citizenship: learning the basics of how to safe safe on the Internet. While we cover this topic on some level with every grade here at Reed, our 2nd Graders take more of a deep dive - for more information, visit my Digital Citizenship page or one of my posts - Navigating the Internet; A Further Step into the Ether or Those Pesky Little Steps.
