If you look closely, you can see me with my twin sister..
I must mention that this nature-lovin' teacher used the walk in the woods as a great opportunity to talk about endangered species. Most children think that endangered only applies to animals. It was with great excitement that we discovered three Lady-Slipper orchids growing in "our" woods. We were also able to collect Monarch caterpillars to observe and we learned a little more about tree identification!
I remembered enough of the book that I was able to write out the gist of it on sentence strips. I passed them out and let the fun begin. I created a document that will allow you to have some fun in your room, too! We practiced it a couple of times and tried to get faster and faster. This really helps my students who have trouble staying on task or listening during group instruction. Everyone has to be ready to read their statement so the next person can jump in with theirs. If you've never tried a sequencing activity like this, give it a try! The Under Over Story!!

I ran out of pockets!!
