Things are settling in around here - thank goodness! My Dad had a slight set back but is now happily home and getting stronger every day. Thanks again so much to everyone who has sent warm wishes or prayers this way, they were so greatly appreciated!
Now that I have my Back to School Bootcamp ready to go, I'm looking ahead to September and planning for the month. I've been working on a Johnny Appleseed unit and thought I would share some freebies. I love doing a unit on Johnny because after the first few weeks of school that are filled with learning routines, assessing emerging skills and getting to know the students, it's the first real content we teach and the kids get so into it!
The first freebie is a descriptive writing activity. I plan to do a giant anchor chart with words that describe Johnny, Then, I'll have my kids work on the activity down below. Since I'll be using it with my kindergarten kids, I think I'll type up words that we include on the anchor chart and have them just cut and paste them onto the paper. I think that first and second graders would be more ready to write their own words. You can grab a copy down below the picture.
! Everything in my store will be an additional 20% off, so if you've been eyeing anything, now's the time to pick up a copy! I have about 16 things on my wishlist so I'm going to have to a lot of fun shopping tomorrow!
