This book is my favorite way to learn about Columbus. It is perfect for any K-2 class and gives a good back story about who he was as a child and how he got his ships for his voyage.
This book has a great rhythm and rhyme and tells the students about who he is and why we celebrate him.
Once we are done reading I found this great anchor chart made by
A Cupcake for the Teacher
I have a few graphic organizers for my students to fill out depending on their level
To help with building vocabulary my students will have this write the room activity this week as well as some word work activities
All of these activities are from my Columbus Day mini unit
Click the cover to see everything I have packed into it.
I also found this ABC order FREEBIE from More that Math by Mo. I LOVE how it can eaisly be differentiated for my students. I also found this great reader from Creation Castle.
This week we are also diving into Verbs. I have this anchor chart posted and see what verbs my students can come up with
For our writing center, we have been talking A LOT about punctuation. I have some reminder posters hanging up that remind us of what a SUPER sentence looks like
but no matter what my kids always use a period. Sooo to expose them to all kinds of sentences I made these task cards where the students need to identify which punctuation is needed to finish the sentence
I am hoping this will inspire them to write more that just a telling sentence. We are also using words from events in October to spark their writing
It is going to be another fun filled, packed week! Are you off from school tomorrow? Have a great week!
