http://mrslodgeslibrary.blogspot.com/2012/02/truffula-trees.html. The students also got to make their own truffula pencil toppers for the celebration. This idea would be natural fit for Earth Day in April. Visit our store at teachers notebook (http://www.teachersnotebook.com/shop/twotangledteachers) to get the graphic organizers we used for free. As the Lorax teaches us, nothing will change UNLESS....

In celebration of his birthday our classes had fun reading The Lorax and deciding what they would protect if they were the Lorax. First, we read The Lorax as a class and then completed the graphic organizer. Next, we brainstormed things that they would like to protect (dolphins, the oceans, clean air...). After that they completed their own graphic organizer and finally published their own paragraphs as the Lorax. For added fun they cut out mustaches and we took their pictures with them. Check back later to see the results!

there were two teachers who loved sharing their excitement for teaching and learning. It is easy to get stuck in the monotony of the daily grind, but if you can find a spark of inspiration it can change your students' experiences and views on learning. We have found many inspirations in the lessons we have read about through blogs and teacher created materials. Now, we want to share the gems we have created with the hope to continue the chain of inspiration. We hope you will follow us on our learning adventures.
