We followed up our story by adding a few things to our KWL chart under the "L" section. The kids also heard some of our word splash words, so we added a few definitions to that as well! For writing, we used a page from the penguin unit. At the top it asked for 3 fun facts that they learned about penguins. They were soooo excited and really enjoyed sharing what they learned! Many of them wrote about regurgitation. They are quite fascinated by that! HA! I even had a few bragging that their parents do that for them at home. I am seriously praying that is not true. It was awesome to see them using the word splash and labeling chart as a resource for vocab!
Today we also got new team names! Every time we switch tables, the kids get to name their own groups. I have had some ridiculous names over the years, but they just loooove it. I make a fun poster to go along with their names and hang them above their tables - no matter how funky the name choices are! Here are our new team names:
Tomorrow we will have some more penguin fun! I can't believe it is already Wednesday (though I wish I was saying 'I can't believe it is already Friday). OH! And I have to share some exciting news! I received an email from a company wanting to use my fonts for their logo! Woo hoo! I'm so excited to be getting my fonts out there - how fun!
I'm sending you all hugs!! Hope you had a terrific Tuesday!
