This time of year can always be crazy. A midst the craziness of MLK Day, President’s Day, Valentine’s Day, and all the winter fun, planning and organizing can be hard. In fact, you may come in to my room and find glitter and sparkles flying with all of our projects and crafting!
In this busy time of year, I always love having pre-made, standard aligned, ready to go packs! I am so excited to be a part of an amazing Educents bundle that offers just that.
The project contains 3 parts: A written report including researching notecards and making a bibliography
Creating a brochure in Publisher on the Famous American, and a Living Wax Musem where students dress
as their person and give a 30 second speech in first person.
This pack allows you to implement this in your classroom easily. Included in this pack are:
-List of over 60 Famous Americans to choose from

I also wanted to share a fun idea for Tried it Tuesday!
One of the things my fourthies struggle with is tracking print. For some reason they don’t want to use their finger to follow along as they read (I think they think it’s too “immature” for them) but then they lose their place!
So I was at my FAV place.. Target, and got a great idea to make some cute and fun print trackers! I love them, and so do my students! They can’t wait to use them during guided reading, and ask to use them throughout the day all of the time! Yippee!
Here are some things I use to make them.
