We learned about onomatopoeia today and watched this cute rap song. Some students wanted to watch this video at home. Here is the link…https://youtu.be/s6i3WQNqUWk
We’ve had fun learning about idioms today! The students loved putting together the idiom puzzle pieces. My sweet mother, a retired teacher, has been a busy bee helping me make fun activities for the classroom. I am the laminating queen and I am not sure mom really appreciates that role that I’ve evolved into over time. She is helping me catch up. We appreciate all she does for us!
Parents….I am attaching the video we watched today. The kids are having fun with idioms. https://youtu.be/dgWlE1NsEjU
