As an adjective review, we did "adjective frames."
I took pics of the kiddos. The kiddos added
3/4 adjectives describing themselves. Then,
they took it home and their families added a few
more. Finally, I added two more adjectives.
They look great hanging outside our doors!
Thanks soooo much to Mrs. Gretchen Turner who
came to speak to our class and share about Chinese
culture. She did a great job and the kids loved it.
We discussed population, geography, food, language,
and of course art and music. The kiddos tried chopsticks,
a scarf game, and a few Chinese snacks.
We did an awesome lesson with TRASH.
I collected trash over a month and divided it
into "clean" bags. The kiddos dug through my
trash and inferred what they could about the
person who threw away that item.
It sounds strange, but truly was awesome!
Here are a few pictures:
We played Mrs. Simpson's class in a Superbowl
Showdown at the first of February! We randomly
pulled names for kiddos to go head to head. So funny!
First name I pulled was Caroline and Mrs. Simpson
pulled Catherine. How neat......twins in our classes.
They were our first head to head competitors.
Sometimes my room looks like a 3 ring circus, but there's a
good reason why. We have 3 ring circus 2 days a week.
Students rotate through 3 rings (stations) during the end of
the day. I snapped a few pictures during one a few weeks ago.
This is just a sampling.....we do all sorts of things.

Language TCAP practice at the table with me.
