Make a Bouncing Polymer Ball. Lots of fun. Easy to make with borax and glue. The polyvinyl acetate in the glue links to itself when it reacts with the borax.

Display idea. This really happens. A few weeks ago I had a lady who wanted me to find the books where the main character is named John. And that is LITERALLY all she remembered about them. She was quite upset when I told her "yeah....that's not happening."

Sarah McIntyre - MONDAY! school library lobby of parliament!
First I found a jar template, which you can grab HERE. I copied it to white construction paper, but you could easily just use copy paper. I like the thickness of construction paper with these types of activities. I also cut some yellow circle/oval/bug shapes...no template here, just freehand something! You also need glue and markers/pens/crayons/pencils/etc. Then we wrote words on the bugs, glued them in the jar, and decorated!

Daily 5 Listening to Reading Response sheets..... LOVE this!! I wish it had more of a writing response with it but I like the format! I often forget what book they wrote about which makes it hard to read their final product.
