I am LUV~N me some One Extra Degree, Amanda Nickerson!!!
She came up with a FaNtAbuLoUs Chris Van Allsburg Unit &
I bought it!!!
Let me tell you what....
that was the best $$$ I have spent in a long time!!!
We started with Jumanji and Zathura.
The kids did a wonderful job filling out our Venn Diagrams!!!
I PUFFY HEART the one below!!!
The bottom of our trashcans worked out perfectly for
Venn circles. I had the kids fold their paper in half and trace the TC making sure they
overlap the middle crease.
They did great!!!!!
When you purchase her unit...
you get these great labels!!!!
We made a GIANT anchor chart and I made a smaller version for them.
Here is a FREE Printable for you of our smaller version!!!
This week, we read Ben's Dream and Just a Dream.
Once again, we had great connections, conversations, and Venns (no pics sorry).
I put the kids into groups and they did a
activity. They really enjoyed "tracing" Ben's dream and making several landmarks for their
Travel Tracer posters.
They were such hard little workers and we will continue
to work on these posters manana!!!
you can see what great artist I have.... and a few tracers.
They had some great conversations about the landmarks and the books we have read.
Some students went online and found coloring sheets to help them
