Giraffe's Can't Dance: First Grade Presentation & Unexpected Aspirations!
Today in Morning Meeting, the first grade presented the book Giraffes Can't Dance. These students truly brought the story to life with their colorful drawings and enthusiastic storytelling. They shared what they wanted to learn - from writing in cursive to riding a two-wheeler bike. They also proudly shared what they were good at, and a student declared, with a slightly mischievous grin, that he knew how to "Drop a 7." Now, from the nervous chuckles in the crowd, I can guess that none of us had any idea what he meant, but we learned that it’s a 7ft ramp at the skate park! Learn something new every day. Thanks, first graders!
