TIC TAC Tornado

My sons second grade class is discussing weather and they have read Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs and will be showing the movie this week. To go along with the unit, the kids needed to make a diorama of sorts to depict some funky weather. Well, we came up with a tic tac tornado. Now mind you, he had to put this together (with a little help from mom) and then write a story to go along with his project.

We cut out some houses, a road, trees, birds, leaves, clouds, lightening bolts and a tornado:





He was pretty proud of it and is excited to read his story at school. Thanks for sharing in our class project.

Blessings, Jenny

  4. How cool is this!!!! What a great project for you to do together and I love the outcome! He should be proud -- great job. I give it an 'A' for sure!!!

    I love that you are helping to foster that creativity in him. I think that gets lost on boys sometimes and soooo important!

  5. Don't you just love doing these things. We had to do a major book report every month when my sone was in grade school. We used everything we could think of including the kitchen sink (LEGO sink). It's actually when I purchased my first circle paper punch and patterend card stock. I purchased my cricut for high school projects because they needed to look better.

    I love the idea of a card swap. How do I join something like that?
