Habitats and oops!

HAPPY full moon after a SURPRISE 3-day weekend because of Tropical Storm Sandy MONDAY!!!

lol...yes

It actually wasn't as bad as I thought it would be...

although..

I'm praying for all the NE people!! Darn storms.

anyways...

So you saw my post yesterday that showed some of the Habitat lessons we did...

Well, today we started working on describing our habitats.

This is what I LOVE about this activity!

Not only are we talking about habitats and what each habitat has, but we were discussing predators and prey, camouflage, practicing our adjectives....



Then the kids started making their own webs to describe whatever animal's habitat they wanted...


They were working on their sloppy copies today too, so hopefully, I'll have some finished products to show you tomorrow!


And I've had a lot of questions on the sentence imitation... It's not a book you can get anywhere...
The county I work in made it to correlate with our Treasures stories in our Reading series. 

I don't use the book since I don't use the stories, BUT I really do like the idea, so I DO use it in whatever story we are reading that day or week....

We've been hitting hard on possessive and adjectives. I couldn't find a sentence in our book that had both of those in there, so I made one that COULD have been in our book...


Tomorrow, I'll take a picture of THEIR sentences they make up. They're getting really good at it!!

Oh...

OOPS!

My kids found a mistake today on the Frankie Freebie that was in my plans...

ONE stinkin' question needed to be changed...

so....if you downloaded it yesterday, go back and download it again... 



And I leave you with my costume this year....

All 3 of us girls were ballerinas - which is ironic since I played sports growing up all through high school...and I was in the band...lol (yes...I'm a band geek and PROUD OF IT! haha!)
