We began the day watching Cinderfella!!!!! We had so much fun watching this play while learning about the importance of always being kind, working hard, and never giving up! This is the motto Cinderfella lived by!!! This story was a twist on the classic Cinderella story, where the main character is a boy and so are his mean stepbrothers. His stepbrothers and step mother are so unkind to Cinderfella and the are constantly bullying him but in the end Cinderfella’s kindness and determination won in the end!!!
We learned how important it is to always be kind to others and that boys and girls can like the same things, have similar names, and do similar things. There are no such things as boy colours and girl colours, boy games/toys or girl games/toys, boy clothing or girl clothing, etc. We are all special and wonderful for who we are and we are all able to have our own opinions, interests and ideas and we all know to respect the opinions, interests and ideas of others. As Cinderfella taught us, what matters is that we are kind, we work hard and we never give up and when we live by these three important principles we can do anything and be anything!!!
Wow what a great play!!!
Check out some fun videos and pictures for Cinderfella.

Next we learned about the form and function of a wedge. As a class we read, Get to know wedges. We came to understand that there are two types of wedges: single wedge and double wedge. A single wedge is used to stop objects (door stopper) and a double wedge is used to separate or cut objects (ax or pizza cutter). Check out what we learned!
