It is so nice to have time to put some finishing touches on a couple of units that we have coming up! Another historical figure we will study after Eleanor Roosevelt is Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. As a nation we celebrate his life daily! Thank you Dr. King! Officially we celebrate on the third Monday of January. I have posted about our activities before, but I went through and cleaned up, and added to my unit. Here are some pics from the updated unit!

My second offering for today is a unit our curriculum team worked on this summer. We had fun integrating reading and social studies and are finding it a natural way to teach and get everything in.
This next unit is about other important historical figures. It includes posters about Alexander Graham Bell, Ben Franklin, Thomas Edison, Garrett Morgan, and Richard Allen along with reading strategy practice activities. It also includes an invention home project packet for kids. The unit ended up to be over 50 pages! I am excited to include this unit in our curriculum in a few weeks!! Here are a few pics from the unit!
Thank you so much for the MLK freebie! My kindergarten class will love the song :)ReplyDelete

Faithful in First
Thanks for updating this. I did this with the apples from your unit last year for MLK and my students LOVED it. I am doing it again this year. Thanks so much for sharing.ReplyDelete
I love your units and thank you so much for being a great resource for myself as a new teacher :) I was wondering, how long do you typically take to teach one of your units?ReplyDelete
Hi Meagan, Most of my units take about a week, but the one on Inventors on this post will take two maybe three weeks. I don't always have time to do everything included in the units, but I like knowing certain components are there in case I find myself with a couple of extra minutes!Delete
Hope this helps!!
Thanks for asking!
Thanks for the units! As always they are fantastic! Thank you for inspiring me to be a better teacher and sharing all your ideas!ReplyDelete
Thank you so much for all of your posts!! I am a first time first grade teacher after staying home with my 4 kids for 11 years. I find your classroom to be amazing!! Could you tell me what math & reading series your school uses? Do you follow the common core with your books or do you do everything thematically? Could you give me any advice or guidance as to how you plan? Thanks again for all your inspiration!!ReplyDelete
Thank you so much for sharing such incredible resources. We are reading Now and Ben next week so the unit on inventors fits perfectly! :) Thank you for sharing such great work with all of us! I absolutely love the cold passages that you included. I am so excited to have found your blog! Thank you!ReplyDelete
I love these lesson packs you have been sharing, especially the ELA/SS ones - can't wait to use some of them! Thank you so much!ReplyDelete
