A Bag Full of Beanie Babies

So I was checking out blogs the other night to see if I could find some lessons on using precise words.  I came across Jessica Meacham's site and found a cute idea!

Beanie Babies!  We continued today discussing how good writers use precise words.  I had the kids each pick a Beanie Baby.  In their writing they couldn't tell the name of the animal but had to use describing words instead.  They ABSOLUTELY LOVED this lesson.

We made a class book.  I took a picture of each student with the Beanie Baby and added it to the back of his/her page.  Here's our work!

Heres a copy of the worksheets I made if you can use them!
