I Like Mud - Adjective Activity










One of my favorite spring time activities is to make mud with my kinders.  We start by talking about the expression April Showers Bring May Flowers.  I then tell them we are going to make a bulletin board titled "April Showers Bring...Mud!"  After talking about how mud is made we make our own mud with dirt and water in a big bin in the center of each table.  We then brainstorm adjectives to describe the mud (ie. smooshy, dirty, yucky, brown, fun...) We then take turns adding the adjectives to our I Like Mud poem that is on a pocket chart. Finally, we go to our seats and finish our own "I Like Mud" poems and add a picture of us playing in mud.  The poem template is here: I like mud.pdf The kids pictures are often influenced by the photo that is on my desk of my four children playing in mud when they were little (one of my very favorite pictures :)

  1. Look into the song Mud by Rick Charette (Charet?). It'd be a fun compliment to your lesson!
