I know I still have the weekend, but today is my last official day off:) Although I am ready to see my kids and my teaching friends, I have not been able to motivate myself to do very much planning. I do have an overview and maybe by posting it here, it will make me get up and actually put it together! My buddy teacher and I are focusing the month of January on the book Flat Stanley by Jeff Brown. We have a few standards on the human body that we need to cover and we are going to do that with Stanley. (ie, Can you really flatten body parts?) We will also be working on Persuasive Writing, Setting, and Adjectives. The last 2 weeks of the month our plan is to do Stanley in Space. I'll let you know how that goes.
And now on to your FREEBIE... In language arts we will be working on adjectives. We wrapped up nouns before we left for vacation, so I wanted a quick sheet to see if they remember nouns and to introduce adjectives. Please grab it if you can use it.
Be sure to head over to Teaching Blog Addict to pick up some other great FREEBIES!
If you are looking for some great ideas for January, go see Cynthia at the 2nd Grade Pad. She is hosting a linky party and her site is full of great ideas.
One last thing, THANK YOU to Debra over at Primary in Idaho for featuring me on her blog yesterday! Be sure to hop over and check her out!
