|H.L. used his leaf man to demonstrate different emotions. Can you guess which is which?|
|Using the book as inspiration|
A couple students used their leaf men to tell their own story. We have been learning a lot about emotions and feelings. Their learning came through in these books:
We had the opportunity to take a trip to the farm. Our learners enjoyed the fresh (and cold!) air and exploring the farm. We went on a tractor ride, hay bail maze, visited animals and went into the garden. The garden was amazing. Our learners got to go into the garden and pick a variety of vegetables. (We have been learning about 'everyday foods' so this was a lovely add on!). We asked them what they wanted to do with all the vegetables, we had 6 bags! Someone suggested soup!
|Some of the veggies the kids picked.|
|Our chefs did a fabulous job cutting and snipping the various vegetables to add into the soup.|
|We used a graph to gather information about our soup. We learned more people liked the soup!|
Some learners decided to do a procedural writing about how to make soup.
We also did a taste test of various vegetables we picked. Look at all those describing words our learners used!
