To help celebrate letter U this week we had a Big Underwear Day. We wear boxer shorts over our clothes and read the book Underwear. The students decorate their own paper underwear to look like their underwear and fill in the sentence to describe it. We discussed and I wrote a story map about the main characters, setting, problem and solution. In this story the Zebra and the Orangutan love big underwear, but the buffalo does not. He is grumpy and even the bugs that stay on his back leave him. The zebra and the orangutan bet the buffalo that he can not say underwear 10 times without laughing. He does it and starts laughing and can not stop. Then he loves big underwear as much as his grassland friends.
