I found this amazing anchor chart by First Grader at Last on Pinterest and just had to do it for our study of fossils. You can check out her anchor chart here.
Here's my version:
You can grab your own copy here.
This week, we have also worked on adding -ed to verbs to make them past tense. If you haven't purchased the Teacher Wife's unit on -ed and -ing, you need to head over and grab a copy. It is amazing and a great way to teach these verb patterns.
Her picture of -ed in the unit is of an old man and an old woman. So cute! So the kids created their own -ed picture to remind them that -ed verbs happen in the past. Here are a few examples of their work:
A dinosaur eating an old lady
A saber tooth tiger and a dinosaur
A dodo bird because they are extinct
Here are some trees we created from my Christmas unit. I love how they turned out.

Have a wonderful Friday! I can't wait until the weekend!
