I want to start off by giving you something you can hopefully use NEXT Friday (Ah! I can't BELIEVE next Friday is March! This year is flying!!) for Dr. Seuss's birthday! This is for upper grades- I created it last year because our older babies hardly ever get to have any fun on these fun types of celebration days. There are 6 challenging "Seussical" word problems for them to solve. I am actually going to use this in my Math Workshop all week, but you could give it to them on Friday to do during math instead. :) Click here or on the picture below to download this freebie!
Ok, moving on to some FUN topics! I am creating a Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs unit to cover some reading and writing skills as well as review the weather we learned at the beginning of the year in Science. I feel like March is a good time to use this book with all the crazy weather we tend to have.
First though, we are getting in a little review of space and the moon starting next week with a unit over the book Who Is Neil Armstrong? from Collaboration Cuties. It is WONDERFULLY put together and I'm so excited to have that portion of my reading lessons taken care of for a couple of weeks! :)
I am also pretty excited to share with you in an upcoming post about the way I "run" Reader's Workshop! I just got it more organized this week... Here is a sneak peek. :)
