Peek At My Week: 10/11

Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links. 

This week was a busy one! 

1. I pulled out the paper plates for the above apple craft that I found on Pinterest here. This was a great opportunity to discuss regular and irregular plurals (apples, seeds, leaves). The craft is very simple and requires little to no materials. For the younger kids, I let them use dot markers instead of regular markers, which was a huge hit.

2. Funglish: I used the adjective tiles during a couple of my sessions with older kids. We discussed the adjectives that we would use to describe an item. I put 1 minute on the timer and let them grab the adjectives that fit an item (I just picked one from the cards). Then we discussed why we thought each fit. I also used it as a category building activity - what are some things that are plastic, stretchy, sweet, etc. 

3. Time For Kids website: My 4th, 5th, and 6th graders read this article about eating insects and we had a rousing discussion about what bugs we would or wouldn't eat. The higher the grossness factor, the more entertaining it is! 

It was a great week and a 3 day weekend is on the horizon!! How was your week?
