Peek at Last Week: Ending Our Fun Fudge-a-Mania Unit

As I look back at last week, we did accomplish quite a bit. From dictionary skills to writing narratives, we were quite busy.

Last week, we  finished our ELA CCGPS Unit 1 book, Fudge-a-Mania. We learned so many language skills through the use of this book: prefixes, suffixes, nouns, possessive nouns, contractions, and much more!

Here is a peek as we reviewed adjectives through Fudge-a-Mania. Each student worked in the Fudge-a-Mania Character flipbook. They illustrated the character, wrote 3 adjectives to describe the character, and distinguished relations to other characters.

 
After completing their flipbooks, the students completed the ticket out of the door. Through the use of iPads, students stated the learning goal and what adjectives they used to describe their character (Great way to check for understanding of the concept). The students did a fabulous job!
 

 
Last, the students completed their narrative assessment for Unit 1.
 
Here is a peek at the assessment prompt:
In Fudge-a-mania, Peter is constantly adjusting to unexpected situations that happen with his family.   Write about a sequence of events (including a beginning, middle and end) to describe a personal family experience of which you were a part, being sure to include characters’ actions, thoughts and feelings.
 
They used graphic organizers, illustrated scenes from their narrative, wrote a rough draft, completed a peer/teacher review, and wrote the final copy. They did such a great job! Here is an example of one of the narratives.
 

 
After students completed the narrative, they recorded their narratives on their iPads. They used the app Tellagami to create their own avatar and recordings. Each student was very proud of their finished product. Check out the Tellagami recording below!
 

The students and I were sad for the ending of the unit of Fudge-a-Mania. We all really enjoyed the book. If you haven't read the book, it's worth reading! Well that's a peek at last week. :)
