Okay, so what have I been up to in the classroom? Well, for 100s day, I never got to make those cute little 100 year old people from Finally in First. So we made them when we started talking about Ben Franklin in our Reading series. We talked about how things have changed through the years. I wanted them to write what they thought the world would be like 100 years from now. Here's a couple pictures of their people and their writing.
I'm going to back track to our 100's day. We had so much going on with our food drive for Valentine's Day, that we didn't get to do much celebrating. I know I posted about the YUMMY oreos--here's what they look like:
Then last week, we did some little things on George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. There were so many great things floating around on Pinterest the past month, but I couldn't get it all in. We did the Venn Diagram I made (it's posted here), and I combined some of the ideas of the cute little George Washington's that I've seen all over bloggy world. Mind you, I am NOT creative nor artistic. My poor kiddos have learned to love my drawings though! :) Here are a couple of our George pictures.
Grade Onederful, came to my rescue as we worked on lion and lambs. We predicted how March would roll in--like a lion, or like a lamb. We made a class pictograph, and transferred it to a bar graph. The students worked on one as I modeled it for them. Then we answered questions based on our graph. You can click here to get my class graph. Here's a picture of our pictograph and our lion and lamb craft--thank you Scholastic.
These simple crafts sure have made my kids motivated with getting our work done. They enjoy making them---I enjoy doing them. It's a win-win for all ;)
Ohh and my little kitten wanted to be posted too! :)
Is he not adorable? :) This is Mario--and he's cute and ROTTEN!
