Toy Lab and Currently

Toy Lab is going on in our classroom.  We have been studying fact and opinion and will be writing toy reviews.  We started by reading quite a few toy reviews at Time to Play Mag.  It has plethora of toy reviews...some with video demonstrations.
Then we brainstormed Toy Reviews and what they have, can, are.  Using the document camera, we played a game, called Rush Hour.  And finally we wrote a class review of the game.  Next week we will be bringing in our own, favorite, (non-electrical) toy and having a Toy Lab to review our toys.

Love the super power part....you are all super heroes...in case you haven't seen this pic floating around...

Happy Tuesday,


  1. What a meaningful way to learn about fact/opinion - using a topic that's so important to kids - toys. Brilliant. :)
