After morning tea on Tuesdays we usually split into boys and girls and head off to The First Tee. First tee is a programme that teaches social skills, like honesty, courtesy, and sportsmanship, through the sport of golf. Mrs Z usually takes the kids out while Miss E teaches literacy to the remaining students. Today we had a writing sample to do, which proved difficult for some! I'm always surprised at how hard it is to follow instructions!
The boys worked on their writing samples and finished about 1/2 an hour early. Not wanting to do something boring we decided to go outside and do something exciting with our spare time.
The challenge - Create an alien being using the sidewalk chalk.
The criteria - Had to be original, and it had to have a story.
Take a look at what was created!
|This is my favourite alien. Very creative use of the four-square game board!|
|This alien was kicked out of his home planet because his dad was jealous of his good looks.|
|"Mr Boxer" is here on earth to win all the boxing competitions.|
That's the way we do it here in the E-Z class!
