The Easter Egg Farm

I read the book The Easter Egg Farm by Mary Jane Auch to the second graders. We shared what we though Pauline should look at before laying an egg. Next the students watched a Jan Brett video on how to draw a chick. After watching Jan Brett's video the children went to TuxPaint and drew a unique egg and matching chick. They were encouraged to be creative.The next class they downloaded and saved a Word document with three sentence starters. They completed the sentence starters to write a description of the egg and chick. Once the pictures and descriptions were finished I uploaded them to this site. The next step was to partner the classes in the two buildings up. Next, the students read their partner's description and went back to TuxPaint to do their best to draw what they read.
