Today is only Tuesday and I am so happy my kids are back into the swing on things! Last week was just about a nightmare!
This week we are finishing up our Walrus unit. Kiddos are reading some non-fiction text. They love it (and so do I)!!
Tomorrow we are doing our big SHABANG! A Walrus writing. We read a non-fiction book. Took notes on the book and now we are sharing what we know with the school! (Aka: the hallway) :)
We used books from Deanna Jump's Arctic Unit.
Click on the picture if you want her unit! I highly recommend it!
We also used the books in this picture below!
I used a sentence sort from Deanna's unit too as one of my literacy stations. They kids love cutting and gluing their sentences! I created a mini-book for the students to cut and paste their sentences into. I will put it under the picture! :)
Here is the mini-book. It is not the exact one I used because I did not save mine on the computer.
So, here is a special one just for you!
Here are examples of my kid's books!
Students finished their Walrus Non-Fiction writing! They did such a great job! It is very tough to motivate my students to write! By the look of these Walruses you would never know! They had already written their own non-fiction text about them and then they used their book that they had written to do their final non-fiction writing!
