Noun Charades, a Freebie, and Some Giveaways

We have been working on remembering that a noun is a person, place, or thing.  So what better way than to play charades!  We gave one clue, whether it was a person, place, or thing.  Then acted out the noun. 
Pop Quiz:  Is the Statue of Liberty a place or a thing?  This is the argument discussion we got into today.  If your answer is "thing".  Then what do you categorize Mount Rushmore as????  (Can you tell we remembered some American Symbol info. from last year!?)  For a word work option, I included poetry this week.  Since we are learning about seasons/weather, I used a poem about summer and added some directions to it.  One of them was to find the nouns.  You can download it here.
And I have been entering some fabulous giveaways...you can too, just click the pictures.
And lastly, how do you eat cupcakes?  I always take the bottom off and put in the top...cupcake sandwich.  I teach this to all my students....because it is an important life skill!  Last night as I was catching up on blog reading (still working on catching up with the commenting) I found out that Shelley at 3 Teacher Chicks eats them the same way!  She has a picture of this awesomeness on her blog.

Happy Tuesday,


  1. Well, whad'ya know? That is how I do cupcakes too. When I was young, my Mom used to pack cupcakes in my lunchbox by cutting the cupcake in half and putting the frosting in the middle!

  2. I save the frosting for last. I'd never heard of your way. Hmm.

  3. Finally! Something that sets us apart...I always lick the frosting off first and eat the cake last!!

  4. That is a wise way to eat a cupcake. I just try my best not to get icing all over my face and to keep the cupcake from crumbling. I may have to convert to your way though!

    I love your fries containers in the back. Is that a type of word wall?
