Context Clues Escape Room

Recently, my students were involved in their very first breakout room. Students worked in groups and then as an entire class to unlock various locks. Context clues and teamwork were used to help solve combinations.

I love standing back and watching them think critically, move about, SMILE, and laugh while learning!

Super job, Mrs. Boo’s Crew!

Let’s Draw Monsters Using Adjectives & Descriptive Language!

Recently, we completed (and LOVED) a fun monster activity. At home, students drew various monsters. The next day, they had to use adjectives and descriptive language to describe their monster to a partner. The partner couldn’t look at the drawing – they could only listen to their partner’s description. It was fun to see how closely the two drawings matched (or didn’t at all).ūü§£

This lesson taught the importance of using sensory language, adjectives, and description in order for others to get the same detailed picture in their minds.
