My girl and I in our Wally world Grinch tshirts. She's home from college and has been my little elf this week:)
The day started with a mini-lesson on adjectives. My kiddos are getting to be good writers but lack details with yummy adjectives so....my awesome daughter made this anchor chart for me, inspired by Amy at Step into 2nd Grade with Mrs. Lemons.........................oops......looking.............ok, so spacey me forgot to take the pic!!! So go to Amy's blog and see my inspiration:)
Next I told them they were going to get to watch the Grinch movie (original) and they had to come up with a list of adjectives to describe him (when he was being bad). Then we did another blogland, Pinterest inspired anchor chart from Mrs. Carroll at The First Grade Parade:
They did a pretty good job coming up with adjectives for our old buddy the Grinch and had a blast! Then they wrote a paper on: Their day with the Grinch. Can't wait to read them all!!! They made covers for their papers and we made them books:)
And finally, one last idea from Go Fourth! With Mrs. Owens. I printed the lyrics of the Grinch song and we found the similes and metaphors. We chose the old famous words:
You're as cuddly as a cactus and you're as charming as an eel, which they drew and they were adorable:
I kinda pulled this all together at the last minute so didn't have enough time to get green candy canes....ours had green stripes so that counts right??
