That's what I asked myself around 8:15 a.m. this morning...
Our writing block is first thing in the morning. I found this adorable writing idea on Pinterest...
And I knew I needed to adapt it to second grade! It goes perfectly with common core opinion writing!!!
I was super excited because I knew my kiddos would be so excited and super engaged with this prompt: In your opinion, which Hershey kiss is the best?
Apparently, though, I didn't think it through when I gave my 23 second graders (who are beginning to suffer from a bad case of Spring fever anyways) four, yes four, Hershey kisses at 8 o'clock in the morning....
We had to taste test them all to get our honest opinion...(I'll know better next time!!!)
At 8am people. Seriously, what was I thinking???? They were bouncing. Off. The. Walls.
If only you could see the excitement and anticipation in their eyes...oh boy.
threatened them managed to get them settled down, they did some really great writing.
In my "Notes for next year", I wrote, DO THIS LESSON IN THE AFTERNOON...Preferably 10 minutes before dismissal!!!
Thanks to Johanna
for the adorable (and very exciting) writing idea! :)
How was your Wednesday!!!???
