December is here and I can't believe it. This is my second favorite time of the school year (back to school is 1st, of course!). Not only is this a busy and fun time of year, but there are so many wonderful, exciting things to teach. I am currently in the middle of my writing unit for Christmas Sensory Poems. I love teaching poetry to my thirdies and this is a great way to start off learning how to write one. Also, their finished piece makes a great remembrance for their parents. In addition, we attach them to snack bags that we are assemblying as part of our Service Learning Project. So, let's just say - we are very good at multi-tasking in the third grade!!
Today we watched an oldie, but a goodie! We viewed "Unpack your Adjectives" on Teacher Tube. Who doesn't remember the great Grammar Rock videos? If you haven't used any in your classroom lately, I guarantee you won't be disappointed! My thirdies loved every minute of it!! Plus- they are free and easily accessible!
After watching the video, we did a quick little formative assessement (worksheet). Click on the picture to get your own copy.
