zoo continued . . .

Here is a cute activity my team member, Ms. Do, created. After reading The Hippo-not-amus we created a new zoo animal by combining three zoo animals. Then we discussed the adaptations. They loved it!!
This is a "on-bra-ir" It says, "Its mane protects him when he fights."
We created mental images using the poem My Neighbor's Dog is Purple. This came from Deanna Jump. And yes, they freaked when I read the last stanza and the dog was infact a crocodile. My mental images chart was inspired by Growing Kinders.
Giraffes and Zebras, too cute!
We discussed how they are similar and different.
We made alligator pie . . . and had a lot of fun with it. We read this fun poem. Glued it into our poetry journals.Interactive writing, how to make alligator pie. Then they each completed their own How to writing during writers' workshop.

It was yummy!
This is a fun syllable sorting game Deanna Jump included in her unit.
