Students were excited to read Peter Pan. We cannot wait to go to the Taft Theater in April to watch a performance of Peter Pan Jr.. After reading Peter Pan, students created Peter and wrote about Never Land. We have them displayed around the classroom.
Students also enjoyed Hansel and Gretel. They did a great job not eating all the candy for the candy houses.
Using Little Red Riding Hood students studied adjectives and sequencing. During word work, we used adjectives to describe Little Red and the Wolf. We created a sequencing quilt in the afternoon. Each student drew one part of the story.
We also worked with Jack and the Beanstalk and The Three Little Pigs. We used different versions of the Three Little Pigs for Reader's Theater. We finished up the unit yesterday by completing a Fairy Tale tree map. The unit was great fun! And even my boys who were dreading the unit, enjoyed it by the end.
