I also found a neat idea in the Teacher's Edition of Reading Street. Since the characters in the story move to a new city, I'm going to use this time to incorprate some social studies and talk about different parts of the country. Each student will pick a place to live if they could live anyway in our country. We are going to use magazines to cut out pictures that go along with the area that the student picks. Here is my example to show the kids:Any Scott Foresman teachers out there with any ideas for Jan's New Home? I'd love to hear them!! :)
It's Gingerbread Week!
