Congrats, gals! I'll have the new Poetry Pizzazz Unit sent your way asap!! Hope your kiddos love it as much as mine did!
Speaking of it, here are some of their finished products from this unit...
The week before beginning this unit, I read How To Eat Fried Worms to my students. Then, I tell them that since we've just read a book about worms, we're going to be using WORMS to practice our measurement skills.
I tell them that I am going to give everyone a worm to measure today so that I can make sure they know how to use a ruler properly. I have them close their eyes....I mean, they can't SEE where I keep my worms hidden. Then, I have them OPEN their eyes and when they do, I'm standing in front of the class dangling a fat, juicy worm above my open mouth.
Their little mouths drop open in awe. Sometimes I even lick it. You won't die from licking a worm. Even if it is just a clay worm. hehehe....I finally let them in on my secret, but I do keep them thinking that we WILL use real worms soon. I just can't let them use them on the FIRST day. We have to make sure they can use these rulers properly first!
So then, I give everyone a clay worm. These little clay strips are perfect for this lesson.
