I'm not sure what it is~ Common Core overload, a new grade level, having a student teacher or a combo of all of the above, but it just seems that we have not done as much of the creative stuff yet this year. Are you feeling it too?
Last year, I created this Smartboard Holidays Around the World file for my little firsties. Kids have a hard time grasping what it is like in other parts of the world, so with this activity, I have taken them on a virtual tour with a series of video and website links. I even learned some new and interesting things!
I just updated it for use this year and added some new cute! You can see it at my shop. If you already purchased it, be sure to grab the update!
We have started our unit on life long ago and are reading some nonfiction texts from our leveled library about Pilgrims. These have been perfect for nonfiction text features and the kids are really getting into it!
I think I'll write a Hey Girl on this photo! Maybe you've seen some of my Pins... How does this sound?
Hey Girl, I noticed how well you implemented the Common Core while integrating a social studies lesson and nonfiction text features.
Way to go, half-pint! :)
