We are new to linky parties... so here it is.. I hope I do it correctly.. :)
This week was our first FULL week back after the Polar Vortex that gave us 3 snow days tacked onto our already generous HOLIDAY recess. I am not complaining - I was fortunate enough to have been out of town for the BLIZZARD of 2014.
In my 2nd grade class this week the kids were really enjoying reading the Bailey School kids book
Snow Monsters DO Drink Hot Chocolate.
They were busy partner reading and working together to fill in their Reading packets - focusing on
Questions - Before, During and After they read each chapter.
They love making predictions and drawing their MENTAL IMAGES too. On Thursday we worked on Character Traits.. Most of the kids chose EDDIE as the character they wanted to write about.
We also went on Brain Pop Jr. for the FREE video they have about Martin Luther King, Jr. Click on the word MARTIN to go to the website to watch. MARTIN
There are two different versions - depending on what grade you teach!
Looking forward to linking up again for Saturday Sweets.. even though I am posting this on Sunday.
Be sure to ENTER our giveaway - it ends on Monday at midnight ~ we hope you had a great weekend.. ENJOY your day off on Monday and let's all take time to think about the amazing leader Martin Luther King, Jr. was and what he did for our country!
Thanks for visiting Kennedy's Korner ~
