Do you teach about creepy, crawly creatures in your classroom??!! I may not teach science, but I sure do love to integrate nonfiction books about animals any and every chance I get. This will be my 5th year to teach about spiders, and now I’m more excited than ever because I finally have a go-to resource with all of my favorite spider activities! I take two weeks in October (but really you don’t have to do it around Halloween… it just works for us!) and devote those two weeks to SPIDER WEEK(s). We learn all kinds of interesting facts while also working on identifying details, distinguishing facts from opinions, discussing fiction vs. nonfiction, compiling research, and presenting research about a specific spider type. We describe, sort, classify, and write our little hearts away! So, without further talking, I introduce my newest unit… EEKKK! Spiders!
You know it’s May when you only have yellow and orange starbursts left 🤣🤣🤣. The temptation for me to eat them is officially gone... mostly because I finished up the red and pinks yesterday 🤷♀️. #yougetwhatyouget #sorrykids #betterlucknextyear ... See MoreSee Less
Do you ever need to justify what you are using in your classroom? We compiled this document so that teachers and administrators can know what Rooted in Reading is all about. We surveyed 500 teachers and received some incredible feedback! You can find that all here:
