Animal Reports

 Teaching about animals? Three words: San Diego Zoo.  Click it.  The animal videos are awesome.  My first graders learned about 16 different animals this week and we had a mini-bracket to find their favorite animals.  Giant Panda won!

Some of my older students were reading non-fiction animal books to go along with our study.  I taught them how to take post-it note summaries, which is a skill I'm using with my 3rd graders and up, so I wanted to see if 2nd graders could handle it.  They can! Plus, we made it fun. May I present...Post-It Note Snakes!

One last thing- need a testing bulletin board? Check out this one I made!


  1. Your dinner sounds amazing. I had egg whites. Womp womp :-(

    The post it snake is so cute!

  2. I really like the post-it snake! I bet your students loved it too! What a fun twist! I also really like the iphone themed bulletin board. Great reminders. Good luck with state testing!
