It's February break in Massachusetts. If you didn't get a chance to escape to Hawaii or another tropical place, watch this book trailer and be whisked away.
Then, when you return to school and need to cover parts of speech, be sure to read Honey Girl and check out Shennen Bersani's Silly Sentence activity. It'll be a fun way to ease back into school. Plus, Honey Girl is a 2018 NSTA-CBC Outstanding Science Trade Book. Check out the complete list of 2018 Outstanding Science Trade Books below.
Activity Name: Silly Sentence Structure Activity
Activity Description: This “game” develops both an understanding of sentence structure and the science subject. Use words from the “word wall” to fill in the blanks. After completing silly sentences for fun, have children try to fill in the proper words by looking for the correct information in the book. Think Mad Libs, then evidence from the text to properly fill in the worksheet. Fun!
Weekly Wall Recommendations
For the 2018-2019 school year, students will be choosing books to display on our classroom recommendation wall. The wall is a lending library. It showcases the various literature choices in the classroom, celebrates students' voices and choices, facilitates getting to know each other through our literature choices, and facilitates communication with the global learning community.
