The activity is called "The Cutest Reindeer Ever." Students get to use both math and writing skills. They get measuring practice to create an adorable reindeer head, then they need to write "How to Make the Cutest Reindeer Ever." We just learned about time-order transition words, so this writing project is perfect! One of my students was so creative with his how to paragraph. His introductory line was, "Welcome crafters! Today I am going to demonstrate how to make the cutest reindeer ever!" So clever! Where did a 3rd grader learn the word "crafters?" :) I would love to post pictures of some of their projects, but I am in the process of moving and have misplaced my camera battery. As soon as I find it, I am definitely posting some pics! I love this time of year in school!
I will be moving this weekend, so it will not be very restful, but I wish all of you a relaxing weekend!
