Hello Everyone!
We are having a great week!  I actually got in some guided reading groups today!!  Yippee!!  I love it when all the training and expectations for incorporating D5 actually settles in and works like a well oiled machine!  Sometimes I just look up from what we're doing and just smile because most of the kids are doing it!! Really doing it!!  I am so excited for tomorrow! Way to go, guys!!!

The week after next we will begin our fairy tale unit (integrating our reading and social studies) and I wanted to share what we've been working on. This little unit is more than just reading (retelling, fiction/nonfiction/ poetry, inferring, reader's theater) and social studies.  I've included some word work, writing, hands on visuals, and some math as well. 
Here are a few pics:

Wave your wand here for your free 90 page unit!

If you can think of anything else you want added to this, or if you see something that needs fixing, just leave me a little note!! I hope you and your kids have as much fun working on this as I did putting it together!!  

Thanks for stopping by!!  Til next time!!  Have a great rest of the week!!
