One: Monday we went to the Dallas World Aquarium. If you are a Texan and have never been, put it on your list of things to do. Seriously, it was awesome, minus the fact that it was PACKED!! I like to be able to move around and there were several times that we had difficulty doing due to the abundance of strollers and gawking.
Four: Since I get a little anxious staying inside the house all the time, we met Bubba for lunch on Thursday. Berklee thought she needed to be in control of the salad mixing!
Charlotte's Web Unit!! Yeesh! I have been working on this in spurts for the past two weeks. My problem is that once I get into it.... I lose all track of time and am oblivious to everything else going on around! I am super excited about it... mostly because it is going to be SOOO helpful during our unit! When I get to doing fun things like book studys, I HAVE to have it laid out specifically, exactly like I plan to do it, otherwise I get distracted and it doesn't go so well. This is my third year doing Charlotte's Web and I am super-duper excited about reading this book with my kids! Each one of my kids will have their own copy this year thanks to a generous parent who purchased a class set of the books! I also was able to bind their study guides together, we make a BIG deal out it!! :) I don't have a picture, because of course, I forgot to take one of the bound books, but I have put everything together for purchase on TPT!
This unit is by far, my favorite unit I have created yet! There is a study guide that has pre-reading questions/vocabulary and then a reading reflection. I have also included 8 different foldables, 4 comparing characters and 4 that students can work on throughout the book so they can see how the character has changed from the beginning, middle, to the end. A formative assessment/quiz that students must read the clues to identify the correct characters and TWO, yes, TWO different tests with keys! Along with all of this there are templates for acrostic poems, writing paper, and extension activities listed by chapter! A lot of work went into this, but it is going to make the next 6 weeks or so of reading a breeze when it comes to planning! :) Click the picture below to check it out in my TPT store, I will have it on sale through the weekend! :)
I hope you all have a great weekend!! I know I will, my best friend is on her way NOW and tomorrow we will compete in Warrior Dash!! I can't believe it's already that time!! :) For those of you just starting spring break, ENJOY.... for those of you that are ending your spring break, savor the last few days!!
