Now I forgot to take photos so I am just going to type out a few that I can remember. So the structure of it went like this;
The (noun) is
Complex, I know :) The point of this lesson was to see if students could use verbs not necessarily write creative and imaginative poetry...but you know what I got both! The kiddos were told they had to create an image of a journey in a person's mind, this is just a couple of my favourites
The arrow is The cockroach is
The gymnast is
I just loved how they came out and they really were able to create imagery in my head as I read them. The other thing that I loved about this lesson is that it was quick and easy but also got them past the thinking that poetry had to rhyme.
We also had a huge maths games session! I love to just get a bunch of games out that I will want them to be playing this term independently. So I got out some old and new games that focussed on number, place value, odd and even numbers and friends of 10. Here are a few pics
These pics show my Build a Butterfly to 10 and 20 packet
These next 2 pics are an ooooolllldd game that I made years ago but the kids still love it! It practices the skill of adding to 10 and is called Rainbow Facts to 10. I remade it just for TpT, you can check it out here
This is another one that I remade for TpT so you could all enjoy it as well! It is One Before Bingo and the kiddos really have to think about what number they put their marker on. One thing I did differenlty for the file on TpT was make it Before and After Bingo so the number line reflects numbers 0 -21. You can take a look here
I still like to use the games I made years ago if I can, but there are quite a few I have updated.
For my next post I have a really cool art activity we have just finished! Thanks for sticking with this longer than intended post :)
