This week, we are beginning our Titanic Unit. My students are always fascinated with this unit and it is a lot of fun to teach. Here are some of the resources we will be using. (I'm including links to these products because I want to be helpful, not because I'm receiving any compensation :):
Great informational text!
Who doesn't love a good question book?
AMAZING cut-away pictures!
Whole class read aloud
There are some fun resources from Teachers Pay Teachers too!
LOVE this product from Teaching with a Mountain View!
I just found this resource from Erin at Lovin' Lit -- Can't wait to use it!!
I love to integrate the subjects whenever possible!
Here's a fun math FREEBIE from Teaching with a Mountain View!
Also, this week we will begin our salute to Poetry Month. Last week, I learned of a great resource for teaching poetry throughout the year.
Boy, I wish I had found this sooner! There is one poem for every week of the school year. The poems run from being silly (Jack Prelutsky) to more serious. Talk about making my life easier! I'll share more about our poetry activities later this week.
If you missed my post yesterday, I shared a great fundraiser that is going on to help our friend, Tori, from Tori's Teacher Tips. If you get a chance, I hope you will check it out. I picked up an amazing clip art package for only $12 which also helped Tori with the mounting medical bills from her son Mason's early arrival into this world.
