Morning Message for the Whole School Year
Save by purchasing the bundle!
Your students will learn all about frogs and their life cycle while correcting the messages written to them by Jeramiah, the bullfrog. This is an unconventional but fun alternative to daily oral language and morning work. Move Jeramiah around your classroom each morning. Your students will love coming in each morning to see where he is!
Using the interactive whiteboard, an ELMO projector, or an overhead projector, students can edit the letters written to the group by Jeramiah, the frog. These lessons teach common core curriculum for language arts, and much more. Your students will learn letter writing, editing, and one of the hardest of the six writing traits - voice. Children love to find out what Jeramiah has to say to them each morning as they read and correct his messages. Make learning language arts a fun part of your day!
This program has 23 slides in PowerPoint form. There are instructions, a list of common core standards, an answer key, and stationery for the students to use when they write a note to Jeramiah. It also contains a computer information center and a frog life cycle worksheet. It is highly motivating to have your own stuffed frog to move around the room. If you do not have one, a "flat" paper version is included in this package.
