Gifted Gab and the Classroom Corner--Book of the Week Wednesday

Look what came in the mail today!  The Toys R Us Big Book!!!  My kids were so EXCITED! :-) 
All of their enthusiasm gave me such awesome inspiration!  Heading into the holidays, just think of all of the fun learning activities we could do with the Big Book! 
Here are just a few ideas to get you started:
1) Imagine you have $100 to spend at the toy store.  What would you buy and why?
2) Cut out 10 toys.  Arrange them in order of price, from lowest to highest.
3) Conduct a survey of your classmates.  What toy is the favorite for boys?  Girls?  Graph your results.
4)  Cut out a picture of a toy of your choice.  Complete the "rest of the illustration" to go along with this picture.  Add at least 35 details and a title.  For example, cut out the Strawberry Shortcake cash register.  Glue it down.  What would it look like at the Strawberry Shortcake grocery store?
Hope these ideas get your imagination rolling!  And watch your mailbox--you might have one of these books waiting for you there?
