What a beautiful story!
Today we read our first Gem Book! I love all books and the children will learn this! But…Gem Books are special books that when I read them they warm my heart with a good message! I hope that the children have many of their own Gem Books in their lives and I will introduce them to many of my Gem Books this year!
While I was reading this book Nattas was able to explain that the characters in this book were using their prefrontal cortex because they were getting ideas and working together. He said if the character’s amygdala was reacting they all would have been mad and yelling. What a great connection back to our learning about the brain.
