There are some great bloggers who do these WONDERFUL visual plans...ya know, the kind where you can see their whole week. Reagan does them. Alisha posts them, and I've seen Jen post them as well. Me, well, I'm not quite as organized as they are----my plans are done...they are all in my head! Does that count? Probably not on those years that you are getting evaluated (which is me this year)---anyway--I wanted to share with you the AWESOME things I'm using this week!! Are you ready?
First up, we're going to finish our Bat Unit that we started last week. I purchased Erica's unit. We've discussed bats and the variety of bats. We did Erica's awesome bat diagram that was in the unit. We watched a great video on Echolocation from YouTube.
We also watched this video from National Geographic Kids. There is also a Magic School Bus video on YouTube--Going Batty.
Tomorrow we are going to read Stellaluna. I found this great free resource from
|As you can see, I am in the middle of printing out the rest, so I can laminate it.|
We will read the Old Lady who Swallowed a Bat and sequence the story. I have this great unit from Mary over at
But that's just one day----let me show you the rest of our week.
Thank you to Hadar atHalloween Centers! We have already used several of your great ideas during stations, and now I'm ready to laminate and cut this set.
Thank you to Gladys from
|Forgive the picture, I was just so excited when I purchased it, I used my camera to take a picture.|
Let's talk pumpkins!! I have two great units. One from Alisha (AKA The Bubbly Blonde)
My students are going to love her sequence book. A great way to get them to write. The plus of this unit, it is in color, or black and white (so I can project the color---and print it at school! YAY!) ;)
|It's on my computer screen right now, again--so excited I couldn't wait so I took a picture! :)|
Nicole fromgreat pumpkin unit. I am loving the life cycle diagram she included. It is just PERFECT for my kiddos, and it's full of science fun! Here's a screen shot from my computer.
I also have from the wonderful Katie King from
I am loving this because it is truly easy to use, it's meaningful to what I'm doing in the classroom, and it is in black and white!! YEP!! I can print it at school!! SWEET, right?
Check out what my math group will be doing tomorrow.
To end our Halloween fun, I bought Caitlin's from
spider unit. I just couldn't resist this spider.

As for centers, we are using the work of Arlene from
We will be playing her Don't Get Skunked Game--the Treasures Edition.
Isn't it cute? Love the skunks!
I will also be using my Halloween Centers. You can check them out on TpT--they are on sale until Midnight tonight.
Here's an example of one of my student's responses from the writing part of the packet.
So, as you can see, I have a FULL week. Here's to hoping for a good one!!!
(OHH, and hopefully I will remember to take pictures of these goodies in ACTION...I'm so bad about that!)
If you haven't liked me on Facebook, be sure you do....I posted a Halloween sort! :)
Now, I must go and get busy laminating....Monday comes earlier than I'd like! :)
