Graduation Song

So the last day of school in Palm Beach County elementary students is June 7th. My school has a really nice end of the year ceremony for our kindergarten students that will be taking place next week. This year I picked a song from one of my personal favorite bands, Two Door Cinema Club. I like this song for graduation because of the lyrics and the upbeat tempo (I had to have my students fist pump.) My favorite part of the song goes, "took a little time to make it a little better it's only going up just one thing and another you know...you know." This is so true of my little kindergarten students! I am super proud of them and how far they have come this year. It was really fun teaching my class this year and I'm going to miss them tremendously. Please enjoy our graduation song called Something Good Can Work.

Literature Focus Unit: The Ugly Duckling

I am excited to bring you all my first Literature Focus Unit!  I plan to make a series of units for my favorite picture books.  Lots of units are in the works and I hope to roll more of them out over the summer just in time for next school year.  If you have made a purchase and would like to see something added to the unit, or you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please send me an e-mail.

I am creating these units to be a quick and easy resource for those days you need emergency sub plans or just want to do a fun unit with your class.  Each unit will include a variety of:

-Critical Thinking Questions
-Vocabulary Cards
-Character Cards
-Graphic Organizers
-Writing Paper
-ABC Order
-Reading Response Sheets
-Fact & Opinion
-Story Remix
-Sentence Scramble
-Author's Purpose/Book Rating Recording Sheet
- Color By Sight Word
-Curriculum Based Project
-Retelling Puppets
-Anchor Chart Story Elements Display Pieces
-other activities based on each story
