AND I get to share TWO extra things that we did this week! Maybe "Seven for Sunday" might catch on? ;)
#1 Alright. First off we have been doing our Kevin Henkes author study. I used my "Kevin Henkes Author Study" packet for 2 weeks and then my students made a cute author study folder to house everything that we did.
#2 In writing we worked on making sure our stories had a strong beginning, middle, and end. And Cara Carroll posted a great crafttivity that goes along with the book "Hey, Little Ant". Click on the book cover to go get the freebie from Cara.
The end of this story is left up to the reader. So the students had to come up with their own ending. Would the little boy step on the ant or let it go? I loved my students endings! Especially this one.
Here are some more cute endings!
The ant had a point. So he lets him go. But the boys still there watching him go away.
#3 I had to include this cute, little note. What the heck? There was more to it and pretty much it boiled down to two of my friends having an argument because one of them wouldn't help the other do the monkey bars at recess. Hey, at least they were writing? :)
#4 I have been working on calendar headers and calendar days. I am so excited to say I am finished! The calendar headers are FREE in my TpT store. Click on the picture to go there. And if you want to purchase the calendar days, they are also in my TpT store. They are individually posted for $1 a set. I am working on putting them into one big bundle, BUT I'm having trouble figuring out how to reduce the size of the file. I have it down to 114MB but it needs to be 100MB. If you have any ideas, please share! I've tried everything.
#6 and #7 have to do with my weekend. I am in North Dallas and our weather has finally started to become B-E-A-U-TIFUL! So we took our pups, Stella and Allie, to a dog park by our house. They are both passed out as I'm writing this post. Love it! Here is Allie on our way home. Happy and pooped!
