Last week, the children had fun participating in an assembly line to create cars for our Inventor's iPad project. Below, are pictures of the "factory workers" building their part of the finished cars!
Reader's and Writer's Workshop
In Writer's Workshop, they are writing "All About..." books. Here, they are the experts on their topic and writing about it to teach others all about their topics. In the books, they are including a table of contents, headings, diagrams and pictures with labels and captions, and glossaries. They will even include an All About the Author page!
The children enjoyed a fun writing activity this week. We decorated our own cowboy boot and wrote a descriptive paragraph about our "lost" boot. As each child read his/her description, the rest of the class help locate the lost boot among the displayed boots.
See pictures of the activity below.
