Collecting Slimy Snails: A Describing Activty (and a summer update)

WOW!  It has been a long time since I have posted anything.  I had most of June off, with some training days for a math class and SIOP (EL certification).  I can't say enough good things about SIOP, especially since it has classroom teachers working on specific language goals with the students in the classroom.   It just happened that I ended up taking time off from blogging and creating as well off work.  I do have a monster pile of laminated materials getting reading to go back to school, and I think that the new laminator can be officially termed "broken in."  I also did a massive rush for finishing some baby gifts for some of my friends (pictured on my facebook).  Now that I'm back in the ESY mode, it's time to go back to blogging and materials!

Of course, the "to cut" pile is not included.

I have a new activity for everyone, because what better way to come back from break than to have a freebie?

I've actually had this one mostly done for some time now, and am finally getting around to finishing touches and, of course, sharing it.

Students need to sort attributes and describing words into pails as they collect snails.  I also included blank Snails and Pails for you and your students to personalize the activity and describe things that your students want to talk about!

This is a freebie on TPT so head over and grab it!
