Peek At My Week- President’s Day

George Washington Hat
This week is jam-packed and short! We were off Monday and I am DRA testing on Wednesday, so that leaves only 3 teaching days. Friday is also an assembly day and the last day of the 6 weeks, so I’ll be scrambling to get grades in. I don’t really have time to do the fancy visual plans with all the pictures and links, so I’m just going to give you an overview! :)
We’ll be using a few different resources to learn all about President’s Day.
Here is an ABC order freebie that I made.

This is a great little unit with timelines, making words, and comparing the 2 presidents.

100th Day of School and Penguins Recap

100th-day-crowns
We haven’t had many snow days this year, so our 100th day of school was February 7th. Here are a few pictures of the activities we did! Since it was on a Friday, I actually didn’t have a ton of time due to library and spelling tests. However, the kids loved what we did get to do!

Classroom Recap & Freebies

So, I haven’t blogged in a few weeks because I really didn’t have anything to blog about… I have a serious case of writer’s blogger’s block. Does anyone else ever feel that way? I haven’t felt inspired to create any new products or to write a post that other people will read. I’ve just been truckin along in my room, staying busy with my class. (Have I mentioned how much I love my class this year? Because I do.)
Basically this post is a photo dump of some things we’ve been learning about the past 2 weeks. Enjoy!

Elmer the Elephant Math & Literacy

Elmer the Elephant Math and Literacy Integrated
 These are seriously my new favorite books! I had NEVER heard of Elmer the Elephant until a couple weeks ago when my teammate brought her son’s books up. I fell in love! So I made this Elmer Math & Literacy unit. I think the Elmer books are a great way to teach many different skills- Text Connections, Adjectives, Character Analysis, Colors… it goes on and on!
