Nounsters and a sneak peek freebie.........

Hi everyone!
I hope you have all found some time to relax and refresh over the weekend.
I am absolutely in LOVE with this time of the year!
I enjoy the scenery of the beautiful fall leaves.
AND of course I've been enjoying October baseball.

Enough about that......

My students have been working on nouns.  One of the activities that they just completed was a Nounster.
It turned out so cute!  Before beginning the activity we talked about the differences between
a biography and autobiography.  Then I told students they would be creating an autobiography about a Nounster.  A nounster is a monster filled with nouns.  Students had a guide to help them write about their nounster, and then publish it onto the paper you see above.  

I'm also in LOVE with the "scoot" game.  After our first lesson on nouns, my students participated in a "scoot" game.  It's a great way to get students moving while practicing what they have learned!

I've thrown out their English textbooks ( not literally), and we've been doing many more interactive lessons on our Promethean board!  LOVE!

Very cute idea! I'm going to try to change it up a bit so it will work for first grade. Thanks!

This is great. I'm sure my kiddos will love the nounster.
