Is it just me or is time flying by?????? Like November people.....really????
Hope I'm not alone there.........yikes:0)
Ok, on to writing. I am working really hard to get my kiddos to spice up their writing. They can write stories but most of them are bare bones.....we have been talking about STRONG VERBS, SENSORY WORDS, ADJECTIVES, and CREATIVITY SKILLS. (not sure why I typed those all in caps.....I'm not shouting.....really.......)
Anywhosey....found an anchor chart on Pinterest that I loved with a lot of the same things I teach my kiddos so we made a similar one. (source)
After mini lessons about each one, I had my kiddos make foldables of their own during Word Work. They enjoyed it a lot....now if I could just get them to remember to add it during their writing!!!
They got metaphors and idioms confused....some overlap....but at least it's a start.
Ok, I'm bushed......gotta run but before I go, look who came to visit yesterday.........
Are these adorable or what???? Our school is having a Fall Festival next week with a pumpkin character contest. These came from one family:) So super cute:))
BTW.........it's my buddy Elizabeth's (Fun in Room 4B) birthday today:))))
HAPPY BIRTHDAY ELIZABETH!!!!
Pop over to her blog and wish her a happy one!!!!!
