We had in-service yesterday on differentiation so we started our unit today! We started our morning with our principal reading The Cat in the Hat. She is such a great reader - the kids were totally engaged.
We watched Yertle the Turtle on You tube and then filled out the Main Idea and details concept map. I then had each kid sit on the "throne" and wear the king crown. They wrote about what kind of king they would be. Would they be a good ruler or a mean ruler like Yertle?
|A Nice "Queen"|
|An Evil, Happy King!|
|Oh my - watch out for this queen!|
