Oh my … where’d the time go tonight?
I’m wrapping up February with assessments and a few tooth things.
We read this book today.
Have you read it? It’s cute. Funny. Poor Andrew has a tooth that is hurting him and he can’t get it out of his mouth. His mom couldn’t pull it out. His dad couldn’t grab it out with pliers. The dentist destroyed his car when he tied one end of a rope to his fancy tooth mobile and the other to Andrew’s tooth and drove off. The tooth fairy’s hammer could not break it out. However, Andrew’s friend, Luis, poured some pepper up Andrew’s nose. That sneeze that resulted from said pepper shot that tooth across town. Silly, fun story.
Then I did a pre-write drawing boxes page on Andrew’s Loose Tooth. Then another example of a story of my own making.
After that, the kids made their pre-write drawing boxes for their own make-believe or exaggerated real life story of all of the different ways they tried to get a loose tooth out of their mouth. We’re calling them “Toothy Tales”.
We’ll finish the project up a little at a time throughout the week.
