C4K for the month of September
Juli C4K #1
Juli is a fifth grade student at Chestnut Tree in Buenos Aries, Argentina. Juli's class had Dot Day, where her teacher Greta, read a story about a girl who thinks she cannot draw. Every day the girl draws a dot and one day the teacher decides to encourage her to add other things to her picture of dots. After school, the little girl's teacher gets the picture from her and frames the picture after the students leave. The next day the student comes in the class and finds her picture in a frame. "The Dot" by Peter Reynolds is a great book for teachers to read to younger students because it let students know that it is okay to be different. The story also shows younger children that every drawing is unique in its own way.
Kaylee C4k #2
Kaylee is an eighth grader at a Catholic school in Northwest Iowa. Kaylee lives on a farm with her parents, siblings, and a dog name, Misty. Kaylee's recent blog was posted on September 27, and it was about her homecoming. Kaylee's posted pictures of each day, except for Monday because they had mass, of the different events. On Tuesday, Kaylee and her classmates wore gray for Monochromatic day; Wednesday was Nifty Fifty day, where the students attached fifty items to themselves; Thursday was Herd day, the students dressed up as different animals, and Friday was black and gold day, because of the school's color. I enjoyed viewing Kaylee's pictures because I got a chance to reminisce on my days in high school. I also enjoyed seeing the great ideas Kaylee's classmates used during homecoming week and how different their events are from the events the South.
