You know those days when
it ALL comes together?
When the lesson is "ON"!
( And of course NO ONE is there to see it..)
But, Who CARES?
Today was it!
It started out with a read aloud
with one of my FAVORITE books...
Who doesn't LOVE
"The SKY is FALLING, the SKY is FALLING!"
SO....then my little ones wrote their own stories!
Make a connection...
We talked about the parts of the story that we liked.
We shared connections we made with the characters.
20 minutes of NON-Stop Creative WRITING!
(And then they asked for a few minutes MORE! )
One of my littles...a very quiet second language student,
who LOVES to draw...
YES! SHE DID IT!
( Sniff. sniff...proud teacher!)
She said she liked the part where the acorn fell. But she didn't want it to hit the squirrel on it's head.....so if you look carefully...the acorn will fall on the squirrel's...TAIL!
What a sweetheart!
So...I think I need to find another read aloud for tomorrow!
Who knows...my budding authors might want to write...MORE! :)
