Frogs and Mummies

It's been awhile since I blogged about my first graders!
Last week our Harcourt anthology story was called, "All about frogs".  So I tied it in with writing by  having the kids write informational reports. I love it and it is always a favorite of the kiddos.

Here are some photos of what we did:

We also read "Where's My Mummy" and did a great activity I stole from another blog. The kids made mummies and wrote about what their mommies do to help them when they are scared. Such a great idea! Thanks to the sweet blogger who shared the idea!
