Trip Trap Trip Trap "Who's Learning New Vocabulary?"

We are eating up words just like billy goats! The Three Billy Goats Gruff is the second STAR book that we are learning new vocabulary from. The boys and girls love this classic story about the Gruff billy goats and the mean, ugly troll. The new vocabulary words are meadow, gobble, villian, wise, hooves and creak. Ask your child if they can describe what these interesting words mean. During Writer's Workshop the students wrote retellings of the story. The children are excited to show off their writing at our Open House on Monday night. Hope to see you there.

As a kindergarten teacher/mommy I am SO impressed!!! Allen was given a lesson tonight on "gobble." We love hearing stories from Chase and then seeing it here:) Thank you for sharing. I LOVE the blog.

I love hearing the new vocabulary words each week so I can try to find ways to use them in my vocabulary to see if my kids notice!

I should have known it was from Three Billy Goats Gruff because my daughter has been drawing goats all day! I kept thinking...where has she seen a goat? Now I know!
