I forgot all about posting this last week. I seem to think about posting at the most odd times now...I guess "mommy brain" is setting in!
My kinders created a scarecrow using an old Mailbox/Teacher's Helper pattern. They chose their colors to use on the scarecrow. Then we wrote about what their scarecrow looked like using describing words. We have been working on color words so they had to tell what color each part of their scarecrow was and then they had to describe their scarecrow at the end. I was very pleased with their writing since many of them knew no letter sounds at the beginning of the school year.
