First of all, you have to visit this great website to check out an online version of Cinderella. It also has some great activities to review story elements. Check it out!
After reading several versions of "Cinderella," I gave my kiddos this challenge: Invent/Create a shoe that won't fall off of Cinderella's foot. Those are the only instructions that I gave them along with a blank piece of paper.
Here's our final product (excuse the blurry picture)
One of the groups even made a 3D version! It has a cute little heel, but you can't see it in the picture!
On a little side note:
* My flash drive did go ker-plunk (thank you to everyone who left me sweet comments and suggestions on how to fix it!), so if have emailed me about sending you a doc... chances are, I don't have it! Well, let me rephrase that- I have it, but I'll have to get it from my blog and google docs, so I won't be able to edit it! Thankfully, my blog has most of my stuff that wasn't backed-up, so I'm not in too serious of trouble!
*My district is trying to cut some serious money, and we have been encouraged not to use much paper, SO I haven't been making as many documents because I can't print them off at school, haha! Most of the things we have been doing in class are in our spirals or on paper we have around the classroom. It has definitely made me think more thrifty and be a little more inventive! No worries though... I'll continue to post pics of things we do, as well as share any ideas I come up with!
I want to leave you with some addition and subtraction flash cards that I made for a sweet follower, hope you enjoy!
