Farm Unit

I plan to use this unit the week we read the book Old MacDonald Had a Woodshop by Ashley Wolff.  I included picture cards for farm animals and tools, writing activities, graphic organizers and chart pieces, and many centers.

I will try to get the Beavers Literacy and Math done tomorrow!

Maps and Globes

The Maps and Globes Literacy Unit would be perfect to use when you read the book This is the Way We Go to School by Edith Baer. I included picture cards, student writing pages, a shared reading books, and literacy centers.

Transportation Units

I am planning to use a transportation theme with the book On the Move! by Donna Latham. The literacy unit has many picture cards to help with discussions, graphic organizers, student writing papers and literacy centers.

I am working on the next unit. It will be about Schools Around the World and Countries.
My goal is to complete the last unit (unit 6) this month!

These units would be perfect to use with the book The Little Engine That Could by Watty Piper. I included activities that go along with the book and activities about landforms. There are picture cards, graphic organizers, student writing pages, shared reading books, and many literacy centers with recording sheets.

We read the book Abuela this week.

Mom made this chart and used it on the document camera.

We did some additional writing about grandmothers and families this week.
I am working on the Literacy and Math Units for The Little Engine that Could! I hope to have them completed this weekend.

Communities and a Sale!

All items in my TpT store are on sale tonight through Monday. I finished a  Literacy Unit about communities to use with the story Messenger, Messenger by Robert Burleigh. There are activities about the book, delivery workers, and places in communities (not workers). There are many literacy centers that include community buildings graphics.
