Happy Tuesday, friends!
I am linking up with my bud, Holly, from "Fourth Grade Flipper"
for her Tried It Tuesday linky!
Last week I began the exciting process of throwing in review for the upcoming Standardized test. We were reviewing the parts of speech and I thought I would change it up a little bit to give the students some real-world practice identifying nouns, verbs, and adjectives.
So I divided my kiddos into groups, armed them with scissors and magazines, and set them off to hunt and snip!
It was very telling to walk around the classroom and listen to their discussions as they cut and glued. Many of them were asking their partners for clarification and some of them started singing the different Schoolhouse Rock songs we learned at the beginning of the year :)
A finished product!
Some of my groups were finding so many words they flipped it over to the back - they couldn't contain their grammar excitement! :)
