Posted on our classroom door is a quote from The Important Book, by Margaret Wise Brown. It reads:
The important thing about you is
that you are you.
It is true that you were a baby,
and now you are a child,
and you will grow,
into a man,
or into a woman.
But the important thing about you,
is that YOU are YOU!
We used this book as a mentor text to write a page about our classroom. Can you believe it is the first day of school and this is what the students came up with!! They are pretty outstanding!
The Important Thing About Room 129
The Important thing about Room 129 is that we have books. It is true, we have a library full of Barbie books, Shopkin books, Hockey books, Mighty Robot books and so many other books!
The important thing about Room 129 is we have two maps and even the Flags around The World. You can look and find places in Canada or look and find places around the World.
The important thing about Room 129 is we have a calendar. We added the months of the year and days of the week to make it our own.
But the important thing about Room 129 is we have children. We are learners and children who play, we write, we read and we have jobs to do.
Wow! I’m pretty happy to be the teacher in Room 129!
