September brings Grandparents Day! Face to Face Activities or Online!

Grandparents  are so much fun and your class will love completing these activities to share about them!  My favorite stories to share are:
How to Babysit Grandpa
How to Babysit Grandma
What Grandpas/Grandmas Do Best

 The slides begin with a delightful poem about grandparents that can bee sung to the song Frere Jacques...Are you sleeping?
Students then share 3 things they like to do with their grandparents.
Slide Two shares text about grandparents.
Students are then asked to interview one of their grandparents and write the answers to the questions they ask.  Maybe a Zoom or Face Time call?
Slide Three students prepare a slide about their grandparents.  I encourage students to find a photo to insert in the frame.
Slide Four supports writing a paragraph about their grandparents.
Slide Five has students making words with the letters in grandparents.
Goodness there are so many!!
The final slide has students dragging words into the correct parts of speech.

Listen to grandpa here.                

 Jean Reagan and Lee Wildish have done it again. 
These "how to" stories will bring a smile to all as they listen.
You love having Grandma babysit but how would YOU babysit Grandpa or a Grandma?
I love the opportunities these stories provides for text to self and text to world.
