It has been a while since I have been able to link up with two of my BBB’s.. the Collaboration Cuties! I absolutely LOVE their Mentor Text linky, and I have gotten so many great teaching ideas from it!
My favorite week is the Social Studies week. I am always trying to integrate Langauge Arts and Social Studies because I feel there is never enough time to teach Social Studies with all of the ELA standards I have to address. And I LOVE teaching SS. In order to try and fix this problem this year I decided to do two things:
1.) Order the Social Studies Weekly program that is aligned with Common Core– It is a great, interesting, and engaging newspaper type resource that students read and we complete activities with. It is great for Daily 5 buddy reading!
2.) Order a class set of the “Who Was” books.
