Oh, my word y’all we get out of school in two weeks and the kids are CRAZY ready! I am trying my best to keep them engaged in learning and not pull my hair out. 🙂 We started our pirate unit last week and I was amazed at the change in behavior. They LOVED this unit and their behavior was AWESOME!
This has by far been my favorite unit! The kids have been so excited about reading and writing stories about Pirate adventures. There are so many great children’s books to read with this theme. I think their favorite story was the one I wrote for this unit. It is pretty darn adorable, if I do say so myself! 😉 We read it each day for Shared Reading and by the end of the week they were doing their own Reader’s Theater plays on the playground. Almost all of them knew the entire story by heart. LOVE it! 🙂 Here are a few random pages from the story I wrote. ( I really love having a smartboard because we can write right on top of the words.)
