We started some animal fun - in preparation for our zoo field trip.

Monday we began by activating our schema on Polar Regions - using this anchor chart:

& this book - ever heard of it?  It provided AWESOME schema activation.

Couldn't find a link on Amazon - but it was at our Scholastic Book Fair last year?!?!

Today, we dove into the wonderful world of walruses, using these charts:

Of course I can't take credit {Deanna Jump's blog & Arctic Animals Math & Literacy Fun pack is AMAZING}.  One student today said, "Thanks Miss King, for letting us make these cool books - learning is so much fun here!"

Tonight is our Dino-Stars production, I'm so excited to see my dino-rific firsties on stage - they have been working so hard on memorizing songs & parts!
