Today, we continued our Seuss Adventure. We read Horton Hatches An Egg. Before reading, I used prior knowledge to begin our discussion and t-chart about what hatches from eggs. It ws amzing what the students said. One student even said that tadpoles come from eggs. (True.) Then, the students created a new animal. They had to be a combination between an elephant and some other animal. These turned out cute. Students then wrote and shared stories about an adventure their animal might take, describing their animal, or creating a story similar to the Seuss book. On the other side of the t-chart, we listed our new animal names. Tomorrow, I will take my camera to post pictures.
This afternoon during Math we continued our study on measurement. We measured things in our room with feet that we use for a sight word game. The students had to measure the length of their desk from top to bottom and left to right. They had to measure the desks height and their height. Then, the students could measure other things in our room. This included measuring my height too. SOOOO fun!
