It was perfect for so many reasons!
-Chalk-A-Bration was a great way to begin connecting online with my class this year. They could see immediately that we were part of something beyond the classroom walls.
-I showed them Betsy's blog and shared her idea of Chalk-A-Bration. I talked about how much I loved the idea--so much that I wanted to try it. That we get ideas and build on ideas by learning from and with others.
-They realized that others would see their work and that chalking on the playground would be a fun way to surprise others with fun words and illustrations.
-They LOVED the word Chalk-A-Bration and it served as a great word study discussion for the day.
-It was 15 minutes of joyful literacy!
Kids had great ideas for chalking.
And we had to share our love of books and reading!
