A Chair For My Mother

Hello Everyone!
Just a quick post tonight!  The Texas Rangers are playing one last game to secure a wildcard spot for our division!  We are huge Ranger fans and would so love to see them win tonight!!  
go Rangers!!  Anyway, the game starts in just a couple of minutes, so...
I wanted to share our quick readers response from last week. In Social Studies we've been exploring the differences in families, what our families need and want, how families get what they need, etc.  After reading "A Chair For My Mother" by Vera Williams (one of my favs) we brainstormed things families save money for and how they save.  The kids then had the opportunity to write their own response and create a little jar with "coins" just like the family in the story.  
Here are a few pics.

 I Love their innocent little responses!!  Great job kids!!

We used silver and brown stamp pads!

OK!!  Off to watch my Rangers!!
