Look Again...Do You See A ... Looking At Me?

For the past five weeks we have been working on a unit called: Look Again in our Imagine It! Reader.  Students have learned all about different animals who camouflage and hide.  Our final project was:

1. Hide a die cut animal in a piece of scrapbook paper by following the patterns.

2. Write about 4 interesting/fascinating things they enjoyed learning about.

3. Create a Safari Guide.

They turned out adorable!

We Are Going On A Bear Hunt...

We went on a Synonym and Antonym Bear Hunt.  There were pairs of words hidden all over the classroom.  (Thanks to my wonderful Intern - Miss Davies for writing them all out)!  Students then organized them on their desks into piles.  We then came together as a group and made a large circle map.  It turned out to be a great way for the students to practice synonyms and antonyms.

Valentine's Day

We had a very fun and busy day on Monday.  I was so excited to share all these neat activities with my class - a huge THANK YOU goes to all the wonderful teachers who have shared ideas on their blogs!

These are my 2 new favorite books!

We started out with Literature in the morning.  We read 2 stories together and created projects to go along with them.  Then, we talked about how they are similar (and today we'll create a Venn Diagram to compare/contrast them - we just ran out of time yesterday).
