Now, that I've unburdened myself...let's move on to other things!
We're working on quotation marks in 2nd grade right now. We did a cute assignment that the students loved today. After reviewing quotation marks, I put the students in groups of four. Each student had a different color of magic marker to use when writing. I also gave them each a number 1-4. #1 wrote what #2 said, #2 wrote what #3 said, and so forth so they all had a chance to write. (You know how they all are about fairness!) Each student got to say one thing...whatever they wanted to say. The student who had to write about it could choose to start with _____ said, or end with , said ______. After all students were finished, we played "Scoot Around the Room." They moved as a group and as a group whisper read each poster. They had so much fun doing this! Here is a picture of one of the finished products (although I'm sure you can "see" it in your mind...hahaha). Needless to say, I'm proud they are doing so good with quotation marks. Tomorrow, it's MACARONI quotation marks...the kiddos are going to love it!!! :-)
I've seen where some teachers called today "Wacky Wednesday" based on a Dr. Seuss book. I haven't even heard of this book before, though like all of his, I'm sure it's very interesting. I hope your Wednesday hasn't been too wacky! lol
