We started a new writing project, Tall Tales. We'll be reading some Tall Tale examples, including some classics like John Henry and Pecos Bill and we'll be writing our own this month. It should be fun. Yesterday we started by practicing our exaggerations. The kids wrote some pretty funny stuff that I will share with you as soon as I get it typed up.
We also had our African American History Month Wax Museum this week. The kids did a great job and it was a terrific culminating activity for our Biography project. Take a look...
I know two of those kids aren't even in our class, but their costumes were too cute not to include! Great job to all and thanks to the family members who were able to attend.
Coming up next week, we'll be pushing toward Exhibition Week, putting the finishing touches on things, especially our 10 Things (which should continue to be worked on at home). And remember, there's no school Friday the 11th.
Enjoy the weekend!
