this week was just as crazy as the last, but we still gotta learn so here goes! I cannot even fathom that it's march!
I finally got around to verbs! I still they don't think have the hang of nouns and adjectives, but I know I retaught all the parts of speech in 4th grade too! I'll do whatever I can make them remember and be able to use them properly, so why not use sharks! We've been in the midst of Dental Health this month and our Scholastic News was about animal teeth with a big ol' shark on the cover! That definitely got their attention! Kids love sharks!
I used Amy Lemon's shark acrostic freebie and had them list verbs for sharks rather than adjectives. We'll also be using all these freebies too!
flashback 80s! This is pretty random, but this is where my kiddos who come in for breakfast hang their id badges since the room is locked up. The letters are removable stickers from Walmart's dollar section.
teenage humor...oldest Lamb has become a little obsessed with the periodic table lately. This is technically a picture from last week, but I forgot to share it. After he's comeback of "potassium" to my "k" please insert an eye roll.
don't all teeth need a bowtie? and she's also taken to putting her age on all her work...future mommy I believe
this is an awesome labeling craft from Sarah Cooley's Super Tooth adventures.
and we are also reading lots about these folks from A Year of Many First's amazing pack! Here are a few that actually finished their work! imagine that! See that gorgeous chevron-wrapping paper! I've been hitting up TJ's!
and I could not be more proud this this paper! This child, oh! No words. But he wrote something that I can 1. READ and 2. Makes sense! wooo-hoooo!
We mushed it up all day today since the Iditarod sled dog race starts tomorrow and we will be all seuss-ified next week. I could not be more thrilled with their interest, my new pack, and the books I found at the book fair like Mush and Balto! I have sure missed teaching with the Iditarod!
these are the ones we read today-
this one was just a skimming book-great text features!
they are mesmerized by this dog! but I'll be sure they learn about the other heroes too!
