I apologize in advance for the randomness of this post, but I have all kinds of stuff to share today. I am feeling like a total blogging failure lately, but I promise to get back on the bandwagon soon!
We finished up our unit on owls and bats, and we had soooo much fun dissecting owl pellets. I got mine from discountowlpellets.com. The kids were seriously fascinated...
|Poor little bird skull!|
After learning about both owls and bats, we made our very first double bubble thinking map comparing the 2 animals. They did a great job thinking of ways that owls and bats are alike and different!
We also did a direct drawing of a bat and wrote about them using our bat tree maps to help us...
Here are some silly jack-lantern faces inspired by Kacey over at Doodle Bugs Teaching. She made these last year and I just knew we had to make them too...I especially LOVE their snaggle teeth!
In other news, we have been working on writing juicy describing sentences. No more Kindergarten "I like the...and I see a...." for us!! The kids are really getting into it, and my thematic writing centers help them so much with this!
|"Owls hunt a night cause there enemies can't see them" Love how she spelled "there"!|
|"One night a monster popped up. I was scared."|
Another thing my kidlets are loving are our Word of the Week Printables that we do each Monday for lit. centers...Here is the one we did this week! This is helping their vocabulary lots and lots!
Lastly, guess whose classroom was #23 on Buzzfeed's article on Epic classroom decor?? MINE! I was sooo excited!
