Today my 1st graders did something slightly different than what we normally do since I had to shorten groups from 30 minutes each to 20 minutes each due to a meeting.  I read them Meanies’ Night Out by Joy Cowley and kids always love this story because the Meanies are so gross and naughty.

After I finished reading the story, each child had to decide what they would have the Meanies do on a night out.  The students had to attempt to write any of the words they didn’t know on the practice page and then I helped them with those words.

Enjoy some of the responses below!
