Today we tried our hand at a little opinion writing. But first let me back up. This year in our state we are getting our feet wet with the ELA Common Core Standards. We’ve been doing the Math Standards for the last couple of years. My firsties had a good time listening to the story and completing the follow up activity.
I just love this book! Here are a few pictures of the page spreads.
After reading the book we discussed what it would be like to have some of the teeth we’d read about. Then they got to choose which animal teeth they’d like to have. They also had to draw a picture of themselves and tell why their selection would be the best teeth to have.
shark teeth naked mole rat teeth
vampire Bat teeth crocodile teeth
hippo teeth (sorry it’s so blurry!)
If anyone would like the patterns for the teeth, face and mouth let me know and I’ll add them to this post.
