I am now addicted to making anchor charts for things we are learning in class. I posted our action word poster earlier this week, so sticking with the same story we discussed naming words too. We were still on the story, The Sleeping Pig. We went through the story and picked out words that named people, places or things. We added those words to the watermelon. After we found the words in the story, the students brainstormed other naming words. Those words went around the watermelon. We then posted the action word chart and naming word chart by one another on the wall. We discussed how in good sentences we need a naming word and an action word. The students picked a naming and action word off our charts and created a sentence with them. They thought it was so fun because they could make up silly sentences.
