This afternoon we worked on some activities that gave me goosebumps!
First we wrote a "how-to" about making an ice cream sundae. I used one of the pages that Mrs. Walksy created. Take a look at her post about directions. Thank you Mrs. Walsky for this wonderful resource.
Then the students added toppings to their ice cream and went to the whole group meeting area. We used the sundae's to celebrate Dr. King's birthday.
The class was sitting so quietly as I read "Happy Birthday Martin Luther King." I know it was partially because they were eating ice cream, but I it was also because they were so engaged and interested in the text.
After we finished the book, we discussed things that we've learned about Dr. King, and I was blown away by many of the responses. I am so proud of each one of my first grade students!
