I just wanted to share some pictures from our week and tell a little about what we did. Monday we got in the safari mood by making little safari people with binoculars. We put them around our safari jeep that my hubby drew for me.
Also, on day 1 we read a story about a monkey and a crocodile and completed a page about the moral of the story. We made crocodiles to hang with our papers.
On day 3 we read two stories about lions and the kiddos completed their own Venn Diagram to compare for a grade. Of course, we had to make cute lions to go with our work.
Day 4 we read a story about an elephant and highlighted adjectives. We wrote our own stories about an elephant with our own adjectives and made an elephant to go with the story.
Also throughout the week we worked on prefixes and suffixes and mental addition and subtraction. There are some center games in the packet for these skills too. Here are a couple of the pictures of those.
Throughout the whole week we worked in small groups on an animal research papers. Each group was assigned a different animal.
Now here is a way for you to get it for free. I tried this a few weeks ago and want to give it a try again. The first 3 people to comment on this post can have the packet for free if you do one thing: use the packet in your class, take lots of pictures, and blog about it by the end of the first week in Feb. The only thing required is that you have at least 200 followers. Just comment with your email address and the link to your blog!
