K-2 is Splendid because it is her BIRTHDAY! Please head over to her blog and wish her a happy birthday :) She's the best. I will be joined by another wonderful lady, Joanna over at Love for Early Learners.. she is a new blogger and quite creative and amazing ;) Please make sure you check out her blog!!
I was busy this week creating a couple freebies for my kids and of course, you :) The first is an European Explorer freebie... this comes with fact cards about John Cabot, Henry Hudson, Christopher Columbus, and a few other famous explorers. I have also included 2 pages of notes about the background of this time period relating to my textbook (that I rarely have the children read from)... I hope someone will be able to find it useful!! Check it out here on Teachers Pay Teachers and here on Teacher's Notebook. Let me know what you think!
My second freebie comes from the fact that some of my students really needed a boost with comprehension. As my kids begin to read more difficult chapter books, the content often will have a deeper meaning that I want them to understand. My coworker Heather uses thinkmarks in her own way, and I decided to do the same! I created this freebie tonight, and made up the chart below with my students. This will be perfect for them to keep track of their progress while reading. Check it out on TPT and on TN :)
