|Rabbits, Rabbits & More Rabbits by Gail Gibbons|
One of the students donated this Gail Gibbons book to the class. It is full of wonderful facts that are presented in a very primary way. There were facts on almost every page that I didn't know. I love learning with the students.
Bunny FactsWhile we were reading the book I had the students make a can, have, are anchor chart. Their writing is fantastic. They love to sit and listen very carefully because I let them come up and write with the Scentos markers.
We started our research writing with a little bunny brainstorming. They loved the new vocabulary word "rump".
|Spring Read Alouds|
We are currently working on a character analysis of "The Grumpy Easter Bunny". The kids wrote about how Hopper changed from the beginning of the book to the end of the book. If you haven't read this book, you really should. It really helped some of the kids to reflect on selfless behavior.
Bunny WritingThe kids were sad to hear that we don't have an egg hunt in first grade. I told them that they could write a persuasive letter to me so that I would take it under advisement. One student talked me into considering it if they fill their compliment jar. I call that a win/win situation. I hope that they earn it and I can add pictures.
