Well this week we did our contraction surgery lesson. Oh my goodness the kids loved it! I am so thankful for stores like Dollar Tree that make being a teacher a little easier on the pocket books. I am also very thankful to our janitorial staff for supplying me with some gloves and for taking some group pictures.
I put their patients and band-aids all grouped in a zip-loc bag and then put them on their desk. The band-aid acted as their apostrophe in hindsight I might put like contractions together but I admit I was very excited about this lesson I had looked forward to it all week. The kids even went and got our principals and they LOVED the lesson as well :). I made them all name tags that had their name as a doctor. They called me Dr. Harris which was cute! We called their worksheets I made charts which they knew all about already of course! I was just amazed at how well this lesson went and how much they loved it. It was one of my favorites and I will definitely do it for years to come! Below is a brief slideshow of the activity:
I created a spring word scramble which you can grab here for free from my TPT Store
I am also going to put the contraction surgery worksheet up as well. It is very plain I'm sure I will cutesy one up in the future!
I hope everyone has a wonderful week. I know I have a busy one ahead of me with cheer uniform fittings, and various activities. It is definitely getting close to the end of the year!
