Oh Boy 4th Grade and link up with the rest of us!!
Ok now I want to show ya how we've been learning about cause and effect! First we created our anchor chart....
Then students read another Amelia Bedila book with a partner and filled in this graphic organizer
You fold the paper in half, cut three sections on the front half. Cause goes on the outside, effect on the inside! I made this one to share with all of you.........
They did an awesome job with this project, even when the cause and effect had to be read into a little bit they got it! I glued each strip to a bright colored piece of paper and had them write on post it notes so I could laminate and keep the strips for future lessons!
Today we watched the Pixar Short "For The Birds" The students used a Graphic Organizer I got for free from Lisa at First Grade Bloomabilities to determine the cause and effects happening within the movie! Another activity the kids LOVED! They worked so well determining the cause/effect! I couldn't believe the conversations I heard around the room about what caused each event!!
Tomorrow we are going to use If You Take a Mouse to School and a free activity from Christine Statzel on TPT! I can't wait to use it, I know my kiddos will love it and it will be a great way to wrap up our week of Cause/Effect instruction!
Happy Thursday!!! It's gorgeous here in Northern Indiana, Hope everyone's enjoying fall :)
