Our second grade team decided to work on synonyms this past week. I love working on synonyms because it can really help to expand children’s vocabularies in a really easy way.
We made our synonym rolls in class and the kids got to make their own synonym chef hats!
So cute! Totally not our idea, this was all inspired by Cara Carol at the First Grade Parade.
Each grade has a board display in the cafeteria so we got together and put up our second grade board after school. The kids came in the next day and flipped out! They loved seeing their synonym rolls on display. The letters were cut out using a Cricut with the “Hello Kitty Font” cartridge. The little chef was also created using a Cricut. I cut him out from the “Everyday Paper Dolls” cartridge at about 10 inches.
Here is one of my cuties making her synonym rolls and wearing her chef hat!
This idea is also from Cara Carol! She is amazing:)
I also received my famous sharpener from Classroom Friendly Supplies! I have been using it for over a month now and I am currently working on a review. If you’ve had any doubts in purchasing one, stop rethinking it and buy one! It’s everything you’ve heard about and more!
I am linking up with Teaching Fourth for Kelly’s second Fun Friday linky party.
Now it’s your turn to link up your fun activities!
