Things have been really busy in my classroom this week. We have been reviewing place value, learning all about Black History, working hard on our Daily 5, and our cereal box book reports among many other things. Since I did not make up a topic for this week's Teacher Talk, I thought I would share some pictures from my kiddo's book projects.
They were to read a realistic fiction chapter book and do a book report. Not just any book report but a CEREAL BOX BOOK REPORT. Have you ever done these? This meant they had to create a cereal that had something to do with the book they read. The cereal box was covered with information about the book, included a game relating to the book and even a prize inside that connected to the story. They then had to write and preform commercial to share about their book./cereal. I video taped these commercials and they were a hoot! I found this idea HERE. From my dear friend (not in real life) Beth. I LOVE her ideas. I had never done it before and I worried what they might show up with. (If they even showed up with anything!) I sent home a complete packet explaining all parts of the project, posted info and examples on my classroom blog and emailed parents to remind them. Let me tell you they did an outstanding job and EVERYONE participated!! I was so thrilled.
Here are some pictures of the finished products of a few of the kids that presented today:
|That would be "Zombie Oos"- in case you were confused by the backward z. :)|
|I had to share a picture of this little guy.|
He wore a shirt and tie and acted as the CEO of the cereal company he named after him!
I have the info packet that I sent home to parents if you are interested let me know and I will email it to you.
These were SO MUCH FUN & I can't wait for round two of the commercials tomorrow.
Hope you are having a GREAT Thursday!!
Link up and share something that is going on in your classroom! I love to see all of your ideas.
