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.
