So we Finished up insects and I wanted to add some pictures to show you what we have been working on! (Yes some of my anchor charts look similar to Pinterest finds....That is how I gain inspiration!!!!)
We Talked about insects first then went into 6 different specific insects and made a fact book with a page for each insect. Similar to my ocean fact book from last May.
We then talked about life cycles (again) and used pasta to make the life cycle of a butterfly. (I recommend using a hot glue gun to make the pasta stick!)
I love the one that lands on his nose....he gave himself a nice little belly and kinda forgot to draw a nose to go with it!
(Hey, Little Ant Song) We then talked about weather the little boy should step on the ant or not. We used three fingers and a stamp pad to graph our opinions.
Our lovely public library for Tom Green Country has an anual "READ TO ME" petition. All elementary school in and around San Angelo are invited to participate in a "March" around our county court house. We chanted "READ TO ME! READ TO ME!" to all the local people of San Angelo.
We then crammed hundreds of kids on and infront of the court house for a picture.
After our picture Sam's Club was so generous and provided water and Cheez-its! Then we broke off by class to small groups where high school and middle school children prepared read alouds and skits for us....It was fun! And the big kids worked so hard!!!
Lastly I wanted to include a link to my TpT ocean unit and ocean clipart that I just posted!
Check it out and enjoy!!!
