BUT.. I wanted to share what we did with verbs first . . . AND my newest giveaway :)
VERB - it's an ACTION word!
We started the week with Pete the Cat & how he was definitely ROCKING in his school shoes.
Please excuse the grody board - it's got wax and tape on it & I CANNOT get it off. Anyway, sorry...
We talked about what other kinds of things Pete could do in his school shoes. The kiddos had to come up with something Pete wasn't doing in the book & write their own verb. Then, we made Petes!
Next, we read Down by the Cool in the Pool. If you don't know this book, it's great & the kids love it. We read it
Lastly, it was all about Angry Birds . . . or Angry Verbs, as we called it. I don't know about you, but my kids LOVE Angry Birds - they have the shirts, the lunchboxes, you name it. So, I found this activity on Pinterest & adapted it to first grade. You can see the post I found at Super Sweet Second Grade HERE. She had the kids writing stories with their angry verbs, but mine are just not ready for that, yet.
The kids each chose their favorite angry bird to make. Then, they had to come up with FIVE verbs that their bird would do. They completed the sentences & made their birds. This was a HUGE SUCCESS!! The kids went just a wee bit nuts, but it was worth it :)
Then, it turned out like this ! Yay :)
The kids had a BLAST & I loved it too : )
Now on to the GIVEAWAY!!
