What we are up to this week!

I wanted to pop in real quick and give you a rundown of what we are going to be working on this week!  We are diving into multiplication starting tomorrow!  Here's some of the things I've done in years past....



 I do hope to stop back by later this week or weekend to show you what we come up with this year!  I'm definitely going to pull from my Multiplication Unit, but I also hope to come up with some new ideas along the way!

In ELA, my students will be using Susan Moran's unit to research and write about animals!
Today, I let my students choose their animals and they were SOOO excited!  After exploring their research materials for a little while, we made our "All About" covers!  Susan's unit has a great guide on teaching this and the perfect printables to go along also!  Y'all know me... I'm always running low on paper so I have to improvise ALL THE TIME, ha!
By the end of this week they should have a completed book with lots of fun facts, information, and nonfiction text features!  Here's to hoping ours turn out as good as Susan's, ha!

I love this unit! I have brainstorming some ways to introduce basic multiplication concepts to my second graders as the end of the year approaches. Wish listed! :)
Thanks for sharing!

Ohmigoodness - Thank you so much for the love! I hope your kids love their books! Mine are obsessed and they keep asking me to make another one. I feel like a horrible teacher saying no because we have too much other stuff to do!
