So yesterday I showed you the amazing metal bugs that my 5th grade made. It took so long to complete that I thought we would do a quick, one-day lesson. We did Onomatopoeia's... on a stick. What? On a stick? Why... Well, I'll tell you why. Minnesota does everything on a stick. You might not know this about my great state, but food is always better for a Minnesotan if you serve it on a stick.
Our Minnesota State fair is called the Minnesota Great Family Get Together, and everything is 'On a Stick'... Cheese, meat, deep fried candy bars. You got it, everything is better on a stick. 'You Betcha'!
So why not Onomatopoeia's?
I gave them lot's of hints on how to create bubble letters, and simple ways to do paper cutting letters. We placed them on a craft stick and they walked out the door with it. They were really excited to have a project to take home. I used a GREAT video to start this lesson off. Check it out on my 5th-grade website playlist.
