Mother's Day Craft

Tomorrow we plan on making our Mother's Day gifts. I of course found this idea on Pinterest!!It is super easy to make and won't take a lot of our precious instructional time!
Today we started to talk about the different types of clouds. I found this really cute poem that I shared with the kids after we read the AMAZING Cloud book. The kids were amazed by all the different types of clouds. Today we copied down the poem then tomorrow we are going to use cotton balls to make the different types of clouds around our poem writing!
We also reviewed nouns, verbs, and adjectives. I was surprised that some of my students did not remember this!! I was like oh no!!! We will be reviewing them again tomorrow and maybe the next day until they can say them in their sleep!! Today they worked in a small group to put together a sentence I had cut up and label the nouns, verbs, and adjectives.
Whew!! I was down for the count yesterday! I went home from school in the morning because I was NOT feeling good. Today I had 4 kids gone. The sickness is definitely going around!! I was a cleaning freak today trying to get it out of my room! Only 9 1/2 days of school!!

My students struggle so much with parts of speech! I've been reviewing it everyday and somehow they still get confused :/ They can usually tell me what the definitions are but can't give examples. I like your idea of using sentence strips. I might try that!
