see, she is breaking the cycle!
Since I don't have to answer any questions (like I mind talking),
I can show you my finished display.
It is from the Waddle We Do If It Rains activity from A Cupcake for the Teacher:
They used the umbrella template to write complete sentences, telling what they would do when rains.
|He is awesome!|
|I know I don't have to translate for teachers, but "When it rains, I like to take a nap."|
|a Play date AND a tea party.....sounds like fun!|
(You know what he meant- focus....focus....shame on you) hee hee.
We are really working on creating Super Sentences. We want to know the who, the when, how, where....we just want to give specific details without babbling or running on.
Yes, that is a stuffed bear in a cape on the right...that's a whole other post!
They are very descriptive when they talk and are making the connection from their everyday speech (vocabulary) to their writing. Realizing that it isn't always "I like..." or "------ is......."
They changed the ending to a story from our series last week and it was very interesting to see them use these skills!
Next week we are going to get VERY descriptive with one of Abby's Writing Units.
My new obsession is this Eagle Cam. Have you seen it?
Go here .
We had it up on the big screen today while we were in centers, that way we could keep an eye on them....her babies are c.u.t.e!
We got mesmerized when it caught our eye that Daddy was there.
He swooped in and dropped a fish in the nest!
It was so freakin' cool....
Until, Mama started pecking it to death (it was not dead when it arrived)
and then preceeded to chew him up and feed him to the babies....
Such is life, that is what they do.
So I think, you know what? I am going to continue to let it broadcast....I mean, unless she starts eating one of her babies or shoves one out of the nest, we're good, right?
So cutie patootie eaglet wiggles and stretches (so sweet)
He is just so fuzzy and I want to hug him and squeeze him and call him George!!
He sticks his little birdie bootie up in the air and (I am not exaggerating)
PROJECTILE POOPS in a spouting stream that took up MORE than HALF of the big screen.
Guess who was looking when that happened?
The room was filled with "Eeeeeeewwwwwwws!" and "Grooooosssssss!!" and your regular first grade giggles when anyone mentions "poop" (let alone watches something poop)!!!!
I got them all calmed down, back into center mode, and we kept them up there.
My oldest son and I checked it out this evening and the camera has Night Vision!!!!
I have to give her BIG UPS!
Cause she just sits there all day. And like sits on them. I had her in the corner of my screen while I was stalking,
and she just sits there while they scoot and shuffle under her.
Dad didn't show up anymore (during that time).
I told the MR that the "good-for-nothing-son-of-a-bird" was probably out drinkin' with his Eagle Buddies while she was taking care of them! He brings one fish and thinks that gives him a free pass.....whatever....Eagle Daddy is on my list....
Ok, the MR has to be in at 3am, so I have "kitchen" Gammit! I hate cleaning the kitchen!!!!!
But I have to be super nice bc he is the reason I am going to be able to go to the Tn meet up in 4 days!!!!
Have a great middle of the week!
