On Friday, our class has fun with a word association activity. We played scoot with words written on index cards. Students “scooted” around the room to each card and wrote down the first word that came to their minds.
The next part of this activity was sharing our words. We talked about what kinds of words they are and organized them in a table. Here are some of our best results.
What do some of these words make you think of and what type of word is it?
Our class had the awesome experience to collaborate with a Kindergarten class at our school. Students prepared and followed a lesson plan to perform a Close Read with a Kindergarten Buddy. They circled important words and underlined things that were confusing. Each second grader had to read with their buddy and help explain the new vocabulary.
After reading, students wrote down new facts their buddy learned and ventured out into the hall. In the hall there were life size drawings of penguins we were studying. The Kindergarteners were excited to see if they were taller or shorter than the Emperor Penguin who is 4 feet tall. Here are the pictures from our day together.
