Shoot for the moon, even if you miss you'll land among the stars!

This week we finish up our unit on weather and seasons.  We also continued our study on tall tales and we read a story called Snow Globe Family.  One of our reading skills we have been learning is how to visualize parts of the story or make mind movies.  So I read part of the story to them without showing them the pictures first.  Then we came up with the things we visualized in a class list.

We then created our own snow globes and wrote about what we would do if we lived in a snow globe.  We hung up our drawings and writing in the classroom.

Today as we continue our unit on Season & The Weather; we learned a new book genre called a tall tale.  During our teacher read aloud portion of the day, we read the story called “Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs”.  It is a story that is written as a tall tale told by a grandpa with a big imagination.

At our writing station during centers today, students wrote their own tall tales about the weather and told which season they would happen in.
