Me and My Community

Hello Everyone!
Hope you're having a joyfilled day!!  I wanted to share my "Me and My Community" social studies mini unit with you.  If you are one of my kiddos reading this, have mom or dad print it off for you and get busy!! :)  We've done many of these activities already, but it is still a great summer time filler! 
The unit contains 30 pages of poems, drawing and writing activities, anchor chart activities, a mini book for kids to make, citizenship, community workers, map skill activities, and much more.  I have loved having time to organize it. Don't you love summer for just that reason? 
Here are a few pics of what is included!

Unit contains three poems

An 8 page mini book for kids to make
Our "Me on the Map" anchor chart

Craft Connection Inspired by finallyinfirst.blogspot.com :)


Mini poster


"What will you be?" anchor

sample- unit contains all 4 cardinal directions
 and a compas rose


Hope you can use a least a bit of this!!  I can't wait to use it again this fall!!

Have a great rest of the day!
Joyfully!
Nancy

  9. Thank you so much for this! I'm teaching a Grade 1/2 split class again this year -- and have some of the same kids from last year -- so I was looking for a "new look" . I teach my 2s about the local community again as a refresher before I move on with them (I'm in Canada -- we compare our community to other communities around the world in Second Grade)
