Today was a great day for learning. We spent the morning wondering how the “desk fairy” gets into our classroom, and how the pumpkin arrived on Mrs. Klinger’s desk.
We discussed the difference between statements, questions, and exclamatory sentences.
We then used our pumpkin, some chart paper, and a marker to practice what we learned. We broke into groups. One group generated questions, one did statements, and one did exclamatory.
Presto! Instant KWL chart via the kiddos, and sentence writing practice as well.
During Writing Workshop we talked about voice in our writing. I asked if anyone could tell me what voice is. One little guy raised his hand and said- “It’s what you use when you want people to hear you!” These children are brilliant I tell you!
I have one engagement picture to share only one…it’s the teaser the photographer put on Facebook. It is gorgeous…even without faces!
