Let's not beat around the bush. My kids have spring fever. Big time. Teaching in my classroom is like pulling teeth. But I refuse to throw in the towel. I will bend over backwards to squeeze a few more drops of learning out of their little brains.
We are reading this story in our reading series:
It is a good story to use to teach idioms:
We went over one of my old anchor charts. (not one of the best charts I ever made but you get the drift)
I was on cloud 9 after my students did this little writing activity.
I wrote a list of idioms on the promethean board, we talked about their meanings and then the students chose one, used it in a sentence and then added their illustration.
This student wrote: That ipad cost an arm and a leg. I wish I had $600 dollars.
This student wrote: I took a cat nap on my bed.
This student wrote: Man, that boy lost his head!

Well friends, I'm calling it a day and hitting the road.
I'm all idiomed out.
