The last two weeks the kindergartners listened to a story called, Jamaica’s Blue Marker. This is a story about a little girl who has a classmate bother her. In the end, she finds out the little boy is going to move and is upset about it. She gives him her blue marker as a going away present since he didn’t have any art supplies of his own. The students completed writing and drawing activities such as, if they were Jamaica, would they be happy or sad about giving Russell the blue marker, and they had to draw a picture of what Jmaica’s face looked like when she yelled at Russell to stop.
