Visual Plans (Jan. 13)

Well, this past week was a little crazy because we only had school for 2 days so I squeezed as much of last week's plans as I could into the two days. This week, I do have some things that are repeated because I didn't get to them last week, mostly in math and writing.

Our reading series story this week is about a pumpkin life cycle. This really bugs me that we are doing this in January. Why couldn't this be a fall story? But I'm just gonna go with it.
Books that I am reading this week are:

Have you seen the book "Baloney (Henry P.)" by Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith? It's amazing for context clues. Henry uses lots of made up words and the kids will have such fun figuring out what the words are. Best of all, there is a decoder at the back of the book to help you out.
For adjectives this week, I am reading

Some great geometry books for math are:
Some great MLK books are:

If you are looking for some free MLK activities, I have a new one in my store.
I am using it next Tuesday because it hits our skill of fact and opinion.

Have a great week!

  1. I LOVE seeing your visual plans because it makes me feel like I know what is going on at school while I am out. I know these are a labor of love. THANKS for putting so much time in to doing them.

  2. What comes next with geometry in your plans? I just wondered what other resources you used for teaching shapes.


Thanks for commenting! Have a blessed day!
