Next week is our state testing so I spent the last week reviewing skills in reading and math. (How boring is that) I needed a way to keep the kids interested and also work hard..... a delicate balance. My kiddos are artistic and like to create things. So I decided to pull that into my review.
I reviewed character traits with the story Smelly Socks.
The main character in the story, Tina, has a strong personality. My children found the story hilarious and enjoyed picking out character traits for Tina. The children wrote the character traits on a sock pattern and supported the traits with evidence from the story. Then they designed their own smelly socks and shared them with the class.
Have a wonderful weekend!
