Even with the unrest, they have been working hard on their writing. I am super proud of the writers they are becoming and they are loving the fact that other people can now read things they write.
Another thing I am loving is........ Thinking Maps!!! My kiddos do too!! They have gotten so good at creating them and using them to help them write.
Here are some samples of what we have been up to!
Valentine's Day circle map.
Samples of Valentine Writing from the circle map.
We also did some Groundhog writing........but I just realized I didn't take a picture of the Groundhog Day Tree Map.......arrrggg! I will have to do that on Monday.

We just began learning how to write a Response to Literature.
My kids love all the Splat the Cat books so we decided to respond to Love, Splat.
Here is their writing and the Splat the Cat craftivity they made without a pattern. I think they turned out so cute!
Here is a Tree Map for The Biggest Valentine Ever. We are also using it for a Response to Literature but we haven't finished the writing yet. I still want to make a flow map of the events from the story. I will post more pics when they are complete.
And finally.....ever wonder what to do with all those plastic coffee cans????
We turned them into our Valentine Holders!!! A great big thank you goes out to Mark's grandparents for saving all of these for us!
