Horrible Harry Freebie :)

I needed a little cuteness in my day today.  If you can believe it, I hadn't done a craftivity with my class since we made our little earth books last week.  I realize that is only 5 days without something cute, but I was having withdrawals :)  So, I decided we'd make a little Harry to go with our novel unit.  After reading our chapter for the day, the students chose one of these 2 sentence stems to write about:  "Horrible Harry really is horrible because..." or "Horrible Harry isn't all that horrible because..."

Can you tell I'm running low on construction paper... seriously people, I go through soooooo much!  I'm down to the bottom of the barrel now!  However, I did ask the Mr. to get me construction paper for my birthday next week, so maybe he will replenish my supply for me {is that a sad birthday wish, or what?!}



You can get the pattern to make this Horrible Harry writing project HERE and it also has comprehension questions for "Horrible Harry Bugs the Three Bears" (FOR FREE!)

I've been really impressed with how great my kiddos are doing with multiplication... sometimes I feel like they get it better than addition or subtraction, ha!  But, I think it's mostly because they are just motivated to multiply!  Today, we made a flap-book from my Multiplication Unit.  They turned out pretty cute!
 


Off to church I go, happy Wednesday, friends!

Amy, I literally laughed out loud at your birthday request for construction paper! I told my husband, "This girl is just like me!" I asked for ink cartridges, card stock, and laminating pouches for Christmas! :o)

I can totally relate to asking for school items for your birthday. A parent asked what I wanted for Christmas this year and after my standard, "Oh, don't do that!" answer, she persisted so I said pencils.

I'm so glad you went into cute withdrawals because this idea is adorable!
