Wacky Wednesday

What a wacky day! The students came dressed wacky from head to toe.

We completed a Wacky Word Work activity in the morning. We used a letter spinner on the SMART Board to form words. All the "words" we made were very wacky! Actually, it was a learning experience for me.  I need three separate spinners so we can at least make nonsense words with a vowel.  The spinner rarely fell on a vowel.
The students then searched for things in the room that were wacky. Upside down work, word wall words mixed up. Mr. Holden had a shoe on a wall!
It got REALLY Wacky after special when each first grade teacher picked up a different class and completed the Wacky Wednesday lesson with that class. I picked up Mr. Holden's Class. Many students caught on right away. We enjoyed reading the book and looking for all the wacky things in the illustrations. We ended by creating a class book. Students drew themselves on Wacky Wednesday.  What a fun day!  Students loved the book so much that they have been rereading it all week.
