We also had a state-wide earthquake drill today. My kids did really well. I didn't have any freak outs and we evacuated in our fastest time ever. I really hope I never have to deal with a major earthquake when I'm teaching. I know I'd do okay if I had to, but I'd rather not have to!
The students got to eat their popcorn and were prompted to write more adjectives. What does it taste like? How does it feel in your mouth? How does it feel in your hands? Here's a couple of the kids' lists.
It smells yummy. It tastes awesome. It sounds poppy. It looks good. It feels crumbly.
good, butter, yummy, round, fat, poppy, crunchy, oily, salty, slippery, (bubbly?), yellow, cheesy
We used the individual lists to create large popcorn pieces to go on our anchor chart.
Between earthquake drills, changed library times, and a few other mishaps, this is all we got done today. Tomorrow they will do centers with popcorn adjectives and verbs. Then they will make their very own popcorn bags with adjectives to go up on the wall around our big chart. I'll get a picture of that up as soon as I can. Thanks again to Babbling Abby for the wonderful resource. I was excited by some of the adjectives my students brainstormed.
