Storytime: Kevin Henkes

This week we did another author focus, this time on Kevin Henkes. We received a letter back when we wrote to Tomie DePaola, so I tried again with the kids writing or drawing for Kevin Henkes. We'll see if we get anything back.

Game: Animal guessing game on Power Point. I put a picture of an animal on a PowerPoint slide, then covered it up with four squares. I animated the squares so they would disappear with a mouse click, and gave the kids clues between clicks so they could try to guess the animal before I showed it. I did about six animals, and the kids really enjoyed the guessing game, but they said my clues were too easy.
