I had a substitute a week or so ago, and while I was gone I had my students do mad lib illustrations. I got the idea from Organized Chaos. So my fifth graders would randomly pull from three different cups–one for subjects, one for actions, and one for places. Then they would make a sentence out of the 3 words/phrases and illustrate it. When I got back the following Monday, I laughed out loud at what I had waiting for me. The kids said they enjoyed it too. The word cups are now apart of my “free draw” station where kids can go if they finish early. Here are some of my faves.
I have a nice, artsy dress on, no?
Thanksgiving festivities were fun and full!
So many wonderful things and people and food. We are so very blessed.
And we are about to head out and get a Christmas tree!
