Oops! "Blue Hat, Green Hat"

In "Blue Hat, Green Hat" by Sandra Boynton, an elephant, a bear, a moose and a turkey are getting dressed. But something goes wrong. The turkey is a little bit mixed up. He makes some mistakes with his clothes. We all make mistakes sometimes. When the turkey makes a mistake, he says, "Oops!" Saying "Oops!" is a good way to let people know you have made a mistake and might need some help. At school, we all, even teachers, say "Oops!" a lot. After you read the book, come back to seesaw to help the turkey fix his mistakes. 1. Click on add to open your journal. 2. Look at the picture and then use the mic to tell the turkey how to fix his mistake. For example, if he were wearing his mittens on his feet, you could say, "Put your mittens on your hands, turkey!" 3. We put an extra page at the end so you can take a picture of yourself wearing something like the mixed-up turkey does! 3. When you are finished, click on check. Dear Parents: At preschool, teachers frequently set up opportunities to model learning from mistakes by making mistakes of our own and asking the children to help us figure out how to fix them. We want the students to know that it is okay to make mistakes. That is how we learn. We try something, and if it doesn't work, we try a different way. We are flexible thinkers and fixing our mistakes is one way to make our brains stronger. Try this at home. Spill some milk, build a wobbly block tower, put a shirt on backward or inside out - then ask your child for help!
