We just got back from a two week spring break. Phew! Getting back into the swing of things after a little R&R was a little hectic (probably more so for me than the students!). We started our poetry unit in Writing Workshop on Monday, so I decided to save our Mental Images unit in Reading Workshop to coincide with it. First up? We read "Green Giant" by Jack Prelutsky (a la One Extra Degree) and the kiddos drew their mental images. How cute are these?!
