Vocabulary Parade...and Tagged!

Happy Groundhog Day! If I get 6 more weeks of the 70 degree weather we had today, I'll take it! I'd love to share the cute little craftivity my kiddos did for Groundhog Day but I was busy trying to come up with outfits for the Vocabulary Parade. This parade is based on the book Miss Alaineus: A Vocabuary Disaster by Debra Frasier. Our kiddos are supposed to create costumes depicting a vocabulary word and parade around the school.
We found out on Tuesday that we would be having the parade this Friday afternoon. Yes, you read that right...3 days notice! The best part of it all, the parade falls during my planning time. I've got 20 little kiddos to outfit and I am stuck. Do you have any ideas? I'd love to hear what you've got! :) 

Before I forget...I've been tagged by Anita at

6. What do you do to unwind after a day at school? I open a cold can of Diet Dr. Pepper and play with my puppies :)

10. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you be? I would love to be sailing on a Mediterranean cruise.

  1. Wow! 3 days notice? What is a vocabulary parade? I've not heard of this.

    1. I hadn't either! The idea comes from the book Miss Alaineus: A Vocabulary Disaster. The kiddos are supposed to make costumes illustrating a vocabulary word and we parade around the school for parents and other spectators.

  2. Can you pick just one word and have each student illustrate it for their own meaning?

  3. I love the idea of a vocabulary parade. I am putting together a training on vocabulary right now. I would love to see pictures or hear more about this.

  4. I'm a big fan of the loft too. We have an outlet near by and I'm already planning my spring and summer wardrobe. I'm going on my honeymoon in June and I need some cute clothes.
