My good friend and co-worker Sarah (Its Elementary My Dear Teacher) told me I should share the blog with teacher friends. But, it was really geared to my parents, boring if your child isn't involved really. So that is when I started Giggles and Squeals.
I love searching sights and getting better ideas than from the same ol file that I have done forever!
Yesterday was just about the BEST lesson ever. We discussed Christopher Columbus. I saw that Erin at Eberhart's Explorers and Jonelle at A Place Called Kindergarten I had the perfect lesson!
So first we discussed Christopher Columbus. We wrote done all the things we thought we knew about him. (if you notice some were confusing him and Johnny Appleseed)
Then we talked about those three ships. Here is my model:

Now, the BIG mistake (sorry it took so long) I didn't load all the kids pictures. I felt so bad. But I was rushing and a few got missed. So the parents of course emailed me all worried about why their child wasn't in the slide show. Opps. I hate when I make mistakes like that . BUT, (now this is funny) aren't we glad mistakes happen... especially on Columbus day?? hehe
So I have a question... if you watch the slide show, there are 2 or 3 students who really haven't developed as writers with their colors or in the fine motor department. I wouldn't want to exclude them but do you think their parents mind that they aren't like the others? Is it a mistake to show them all? Your thoughts would be appreciated.
