|Watermelon Kool-Aid, Watermelon Jolly Ranchers and Watermelon Gum for EOY|
Yay we made it to the last week of school! If we are honest it takes a lot of energy to get through this week. I for one want to keep teaching, hold their attention and have fun. So this is what I came up with.
We read "The Watermelon Seed" and found the central message.
We listened to the Watermelon Song and learned how to spell w-a-t-e-r-m-e-l-o-n!!
We pretended to be taste testers and tested watermelon Kool-Aid. After we tasted it we wrote down adjectives to describe it.
My favorite was tasting watermelon. Yum. We drew pictures of it and found more adjectives.
We had a lot of fun guessing the flavors of our jolly ranchers! Followed by a little down time chewing our watermelon gum.
To end the day we had a seed spitting contest. The kids loved it and said that it was their favorite part.
I hope that you have a fabulous last week and a wonderful summer!
