The Joys of Autumn!

Oh my goodness, it has been forever since I have been on my poor neglected blog.   We are halfway through the first grading period but I am still trying to catch my breath!  The past few weeks we have been writing about apples and pumpkins and the students absolutely love making Double Bubble Maps.  We use these anchor charts to compare and contrast items.

We already have a class pumpkin!  Our class had a great time thinking of adjectives to describe the pumpkin.  We have lots of plans for this perfect pumpkin which I will share in the upcoming weeks!

I also wanted to share this apple diagram with you.  This activity was so easy to do with the kids.  We also learned that when you label a picture it shares a lot of new information with others.  What a great way to learn new vocabulary!
