I created this right after a near meltdown (of mine!) over the fact that we are not concentrating enough on grammar in the curriculum. As a result, my students truly don’t know the difference between run-ons, fragments and complete sentences. I’m worried about the kind of writers our schools are creating (but that’s a soap box for another day).
So if run-ons & fragments make you want to SCREAM, you may want to download this little freebie. 🙂
Last but not least, I ran across this old school cereal while I was browsing in Target…
Man, oh man, it brought me right back to the 80s!!
As a kid I loved this cereal, so I bought it to chow down on.
Uhhhhhh, it wasn’t quite as good as I remembered (yuck!) so I decided to haul it to school and turn these sugary morsels into speech tokens for the month!
The kids loved using the cereal pieces as token for the “roll and cover” games (from my trusty Halloween fun pack again). At first I had the cereal in individual baggies for them, but these 2 kiddos here just kind of went bonkers and tore into the bag. Candy corn works great for this, too.
Bonkers occurs only ocassionally in my room, I swear, but it definitely“happened” today.
I can’t wait to share what we do next!
Is your October action packed, too??
What kind of freaky fun is going on in your speech room?
