1st graders had an idea, an awful idea, a wonderful awful idea...Grinch Day! All the Whos down in Whomeadow, the tall and the small, enjoyed an awfully wonderful Grinch Day. 1st grade gathered in the gym and enjoyed the story How the Grinch Stole Christmas.
Each 1st grader made their own Grinch card with pictures and kind messages to help grow another person's heart.
1st graders then gathered around in a circle just like the Whos and played musical cards to the song, You're a Mean One Mr. Grinch. We passed our cards from one Who to the next until the music stopped. Each 1st grader then got a card made by another 1st grader to help make their heart grow (it also helped grow their teachers' hearts). It was truly adorable!
We know the Grinch's heart was too sizes too small so 1st graders were on the look out for others showing kindness to one and all throughout the day. We added lots of new hearts to our giant Grinch.Merry Grinchmas!
