Super Sale for the Super Bowl!

We are kicking off February and celebrating the Super Bowl with a storewide sale. Everything in our store is 20% off this weekend.

If you are looking for some awesome resources for this time of year, here are a few ideas!

This unique resource for President's Day asks students to look at famous quotes from presidents to infer what they mean as well as to identify what they say about the type of person the president was.

Our kiddos just completed this activity last week. It was a great opportunity for them to practice their line plot building skills as well as work collaboratively to complete a task. Kids also took time to analyze their line plot.

If you haven't checked out our Word Study units, take advantage of the sale and grab the February pack. It provides students with activities to ensure that they are going beyond memorizing a spelling list. Our word study looks at 7-8 words a month, breaks the words into parts, and uses those parts to spell and understand new words. Our kids love the activities and building their Word Study Notebook each month.

Happy shopping!

We Heart Lapbooks!

Mollie and I are so excited to post two new products today. Both are Lapbooks. What an amazing creation and one that our kiddos LOVE. We have used both of these with our students and just needed a snow day like today to get them polished up and ready for you all!

We are tasked with teaching Michigan history, from beginning to present. It can be a bit overwhelming and difficult for our kiddos to grasp. Our History: Linking to the Past Lapbook was a great way to support our students.

At the end of each lesson we teach on Michigan history we recap the important information covered during the lesson and students add the info to the appropriate foldable. It is a perfect way to identify what is REALLY important. Some of the foldables include:

So much fun, right?? Check it out here at our TPT store: History: Linking to the Past Lapbook.

The second Lapbook we uploaded today is our Science: Circle of Life Lapbook. This focuses on animal and plant life cycles as well as how they both use structures to survive. Here is a glimpse:

Such a great opportunity for kids to gather information in one place to use for preparing for the end of the unit assessment. To check out this Lapbook, click here: Science: The Circle of Life Lapbook.
