Many Luscious Lollipops!

We read the book Many Luscious Lollipops and I had the children write two sentences about candy using three or more adjectives.  I cut the lollipop out below and printed two on one sheet of oaktag(I did not use the stick).  The kids created a front and back.  We added glitter, cellophane and ribbon.  They look great hanging in the room.

One of the lessons we did was "Show, Don't Tell."  I projected the following page on the board.  We read and discussed their examples.

Here are samples of the paragraphs my children wrote:

Wikki Stix Meets Geometry

Today we created Geometry Vocabulary Posters to review all of our terms.  We used Wikki Stix to model each word.  They had so much fun.  The biggest challenge was folding the paper into 12 boxes!
