Here it is!
This will be my one post for the week.
I have parent/teacher conferences
Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday night.
I'm sure by Friday I will have no energy to post.
Wish me luck.
So instead of getting things ready,
I'm writing to all of you.
These are two of my
1. Grammar Girls/Guys/Animals/etc.
We are working a lot of recognizing and using
the different parts of speech.
A fun way to practice these skills
was by creating grammar characters.
Everyone chose their character.
We had animals, famous people, classmates
and some kids even created themselves.
Then we added hands, feet or other equipment
and details that went along with the character.
Finally, we filled in our information.
Each hand, foot or piece of equipment
had a different part of speech.
We used nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs
that were related to our character.
The whole project took about four days,
and the kids had a lot of fun.
Plus it will be great to have these up
for the parents to see at conferences.
#2 - The History of Halloween
with QR codes
I'm not a big fan of Halloween.
Never have been a fan,
but most kids love it!
In order to make it somewhat educational,
my students will learn about the History of Halloween.
The students get to go around the room
and scan the code.
Then they read the information and answer the questions
on the worksheet that is provided.
I know that not everyone has access to QR code scanners,
so I've also included cards with the information and no codes.
This could be used as a whole class activity
where the teacher does one card a day.
I place the cards around the room
and we spend two days scanning and answering.
You could also make it into a center.
As always, I like to have a mini-giveaway
with my new products.
