The Golden Amulet

Our last fairy tale in our First Consonant Block was The Golden Amulet for the letter 'T.' My picture is above, Kirven's is below.


And the circle was our form drawing for that week. The form gave him a little bit of trouble. It is a difficult form for first graders to make a well-balanced circle. He made a perfect one in the sand tray. I made a mistake by unthinkingly exclaiming, Nice! when he did it because he became overly confident for the rest of the form work and easily frustrated when it didn't come as easily with the crayon drawing. What a good reminder of being 'punished by rewards...'

Dunagan decided he was not ready to leave his 'Blue Period' after all.
