Transportation and the end of insects!!!

This week we began a new unit in reading, and the theme is transportation. For their theme launch project, my kiddos had to create their favorite mode of transportation, and share it with the class. Here are a few, they were so excited to show it off!

I loved them all, especially the 3-D plane above!

We finally completed our Very Hungry Caterpillar/Insect unit, and this week we worked some more on their writing (which has been like pulling teeth!), and we did a neat caterpillar craftivity!

The first and last writing are the ones who get caught up because they cannot spell the word correctly, and then it just derails from there, because they don't want to write anymore. We have been working really hard on writing the sounds we hear in words, and also being able to read it back to me. They did a great job of continuing on, and they were so proud of it when they finished. So was I!

For our fun activity today, we did a caterpillar craftivity. My students loved it, because they were able to use the glue in the bottle. They'll do anything for that!

Tomorrow's Friday, and I'm so glad we're off!!! I almost don't know what to do with myself!!!!! 


  1. Hang in there! I think the writing looks good!
