Adjective and Contraction Freebies for If You Take a Mouse to the Movies

Yikes!  I can't believe there are only two more days of school before Christmas break.  I am trying so hard to squeeze in everything I have planned to do before break.  This week we have been reading , "If You Take a Mouse to the Movies".   The kids absolutely LOVED reading this book.  There are oodlees and gobs of fun activities to do with  all of Laura Numeroff's books.  Here are just two of the activities we did with the story.  First we talked about contractions:

In another activity we spent a little time exploring popcorn while also learning about adjectives .  Everyone knows you can't go to the movies without popcorn!  Right?   We started by talking about how the popcorn felt, looked, and smelled. 

Look how incredibly adorable these two are exploring together, they absolutely  cracked me up!  Do they look into this activity or what?  I think they are future Scientist INDEED! 
  Once we were finished LOOKIN' and a SNIFFIN' we did a little TASTIN'.  Then we used this Pinterest  inspired chart to make a list of the findings from our exploration.   If you know what blog this originally came from please let me know. 

Following our group chart and chat about adjectives students had the chance to make their own list of adjectives.  Look how hard this little guy is working to stretch out his sounds as he writes, so sweet. (looks like a vowel sound in the works huh?)
