I am gearing up to do Easter stuff all next week, and I found the cutest book in our school library that is perfect for my third graders! It is really not super Easter-y, but I know that they will enjoy it! Plus it is a Caldecott Honor book!!
The book has a great amount of past tense words in it, so I am going to spend the week working on -ed endings with my third graders, something they struggle with. After reading the book aloud, each day we will work to find and write words with -ed endings. For Fun Friday, we are going to play the game "Creepy Carrots".
The game is simple as students go around the board to spell past tense verbs correctly. Or it could be used to add -ing to words, whichever you choose. It includes two recording sheets, one for -ed endings and one for -ing endings for use in a literacy center. The best part ~ it is FREE! Click here or on the picture above to grab your copy!
And, if you would like another great freebie for this book, head on over to Ripper Resources! She has a great comparison activity to use with this book and Muncha, Muncha, Muncha!
Now, for the truth from my Truth or Lie post! This was so much fun!
1. YES, I dated my husband's twin brother first! That was how I met my husband! Funny how God works! My father-in-law always said I was going to date him next!
|Father-in-law, twin brother, my husband|
3. YES! My son was 10 lb., 3oz, an d my daughter was 6 lb., 11 oz when they were born! Best part ~ I am only 5'1"!!! She is still tiny, wearing 18 months clothes! On her first birthday, she could still wear her "coming home" outfit!!!!
|This was Zack and Ginny Beth on her first birthday!|
I will be in "George" Washington D.C., as one of my kindergarteners said today, with the sixth graders, so I will be back over the weekend!
Until next time!
