Some have suggested I post on Teachers Pay Teachers. Instead of doing that, if you would like to support me with a monetary contribution you could donate funds for an upcoming Relay for Life Walk I will be doing in April. I would be so very appreciative!! You can donate as little as $5.oo and every little bit helps so much! My Relay for Life Page link is here and it will allow you to make a contribution online.
Now to Food Chains. Are you familiar with this book? Debbie Diller presented it at a Guided Reading Conference I attended a couple of years ago. It is fabulous and has a repeating, predictable text that lends itself to choral reading. Last year I had my students create their own versions of this story in writer's workshop. They wrote stories like: Tundra Circle, Grasslands Circle, Desert Circle, etc.Again, my pictures refuse to load horizonally. Does anyone know what's up with that? Anyway, my kids were given a name of a member of an organism from a particular biome. They illustrated onto a paper plate. We then mixed them all up, handed them out and they had to try to create a food chain. This worked great and the kids enjoyed the time up out of their seats.
