We have been learning to use a lot of what we learn from him through our reading in our own writing. To help with this, we created an anchor chart all about Mo. We learned about direction lines, movement lines, thought bubbles, speech bubbles, big words=loud voice (and little words=whisper voice), and how Mo shows feelings with facial expressions (which we added to the chart after I took the picture).
Oral story: When I went outside with my daddy we played catch. He told me "catch" and it went over my head.
Do you notice the speech bubble coming out of Dad's mouth? And can you find the direction line that follows the tennis ball? Awesome!
Next, we had to get a little artsy! Each child was given the choice of three projects and signed up to make either an Elephant, Piggie or Pigeon. Here is the display in the hallway. Aren't they just too cute?
