Lots of great Linkies out there this week, my friends! First, I'm linking up with Blog Hoppin' to show you what I bought during the Teachers Pay Teachers Cyber Monday (and Tuesday) sale...
This adorable unit features Jan Brett's version of Town Mouse, Country Mouse and Mo Willems' City Dog, Country Frog. I added Aesop's City Mouse, Country Mouse and did a whole integrated unit on urban, suburban, and rural communities, using many of the resources in this precious unit! We're still working, but I'll tell you, I've never had students literally beg to keep working, even though it was time for recess! Bless their hearts - they loved all three books, and we did a triple Venn diagram to compare and contrast them. The kids were so into it, it turned into a competition to see who could find the most similarities and differences, thus the begging to not stop working!My next purchase was just for me. I love Erica Borher, and always think she has the cutest things! If you saw the "My Purchases" section on my TPT account, you'd see how darling I really think her work is. This resource book was over 100 pages long, so I waited until the big sale to splurge on it! I am still feeling a little shaky about Common Core, Reading Groups, and a new reading series all at once, but much better than at the beginning of the year...still, I'm hoping Erica can help me out!
And now...Linking up with Farley at Oh' Boy 4th Grade for Currently:
Farley's also added a "Block Party" by grade level, so I have to check that out!
Have a great week, y'all...Tuesday, we'll be starting the 12 Days of Christmas in my room (only 12 left before winter break), so check back to see what we're up to!
