I don't remember "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs" from when I was a kid. It was a book that for some reason, I never read. I found it as an adult and can't lie, I love it. I've never seen the movie, but really enjoy reading the book with my language groups while they're talking about weather in class.
As usual, I am going to share a copy of my Language at Home companion for the book. Do you ever use "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs" in your language groups or class? What activities do you like to do with this book? Please comment on this post to share what you teach with this tale!
Note: If you downloaded Animal Idioms 2, I am here to tell you the sequel was NOT as good as the original. We had to go in for some "reshoots." To make a long story short, I use a low-end page design software that has worked very well for my needs BUT one thing that has irked me about it is that it "saves" over originals without asking you if you want to save... and I am sure there was a good amount of user error in there, as well. So sorry! I am glad it is the weekend, so nobody probably had a chance to print those yet! Lesson learned - I will be triple checking when I post! Thank you, Andrea, for alerting me to this error!
If you ever notice any errors or things that do not look quite right, please let me know via comments or email! Thanks! :]
One of my favorite materials I made during my internship was an animal idioms bingo game. I am a firm believer in using color ink on a few items, laminating them, and saving paper in the long run... so this is an ink bleeder, but, in my opinion, so worth it for your older kids who have difficulty with figurative language.
This is a two parter.
First, we have the Animal Idiom Bingo cards with the sayings...
