Beanie Babies!

I have a wardrobe of Beanies!  What to do with them?  AHHH...the learning opportunities are endless!
I put a different Beanie on each student's desk.  Tomorrow we will use them to refresh our memory on animal categories- mammals, reptiles, etc.   (If you have a mammal leap over to the carpet)   We will also use them to enhance our unit on parts of speech-nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs.  (Use three adjectives to describe your Beanie, etc.)  Finally, we are going to use them in math to enrich our fraction unit.  (out of all the Beanies in the room, how many have 4 legs, etc.).  Tuesday then awaits for more Beanie Baby enhanced lessons! :)
