Wrapping up our Rooms of the House Theme

We ended our Rooms of the House theme by putting our houses together!

Requesting (I want ___)
Name recognition

Throughout the theme when we focused on particular rooms, the students were able to make their own rooms by requesting items to glue onto the room ("I want a sink"). They were finally able to put them all together and put them on their house.
They  had an opportunity to  find their own rooms by identifying their name.
We reviewed the vocabulary for the rooms and the students requested their room ("I want my kitchen") and glued them on.
It's true that some of the houses look a bit run down with rooms put on sideways and on top of each other.
But, this is because we want to give the students a chance to make their house their own. We do give them a model, but they are on thier own...besides, do you really want the teachers' artwork on your refrigerator? ;)

Our next theme coming up is St. Patrick's Day! Shamrocks, Leprechauns and Rainbows galore!!
