"Would you rather do a worksheet?" I reply.
"Heck no. I mean, at least we made football players."
I do have to admit, my class has become much more crafty in the past few months. How could I not be after seeing all these awesome ideas that my bloggy friends share?
I have always
For our first writing activity, we used Teri's super bowl craftivity. She has the pattern for just $1. It is so adorably cute! We talked a lot about making predictions, and we talked about how we could support our predictions.
I gave my students two options. One, write their prediction for who will win this year's Super Bowl and support your prediction. Two, write their prediction for who will be in the Super Bowl next year!
I am a big Carolina Panthers fan (even though they usually stink), but I live in Panthers Country and my dad has worked for the Panthers since I was 8 so I have grown up with it! So I was thrilled to see all the Panthers Players that my students created! Along with lots of other cute little players.
This sweetie wore her Steelers jersey the next day to match her player. Too bad it's the Steelers....
My boys really enjoyed this project and I was amazed at how much they could remember about football players and teams (but can't remember their times tables. ha)
Teaching third grade, I can't do all of the cute holidays projects I see in the younger grades, but I fit in this cute Groundhog Day Writing Project! I got the pattern from Jennifer for free!
Going along with our "choosing a side and supporting it" theme. The students decided if they were happy or unhappy that the groundhog saw it's shadow. Most of the students were unhappy because they were ready for summer! It's funny because we have had zero snow, and the temps have been in at least the 50's for most of the winter!
Well, here are some of the finished products!
(this one needs a nose but his writing was too funny)
Well, I need to work on some assessments for tomorrow! Have a great Thursday friends! :)
