Week 3--I.B. Costumes
This has been a fantastic month! I have gotten so many LOs done, I may have to start scanning some older pictures just to have something to scrap.
Journaling: At Handley, the students come from a variety of cultures. As a result, holidays are down played. At Halloween, the kids are still given a chance to dress-up, but the costumes become I.B. (International Baccalaureate) Trait Costumes. The students must dress as a character in a book and identify which traits that character displays. For his Kindergarten costume, Joshua wanted to be the house that Jack built. We explained that he needed to be one of the characters, not to mention we didn’t know how to make a house. He insisted and even went to his teacher for permission, so we agreed to help him be a plank of wood. Jordan chose to be Officer Buckle from “Officer Buckle and Police Dog Gloria” for his first grade costume. He was still small enough at the time to draw the uniform on an XL pillow case. Grandma loaned him a hat and the costume was complete.
