So I don't know how you teachers out there with kids keep up with checking your favorite blogs, let alone keep up with your own blog. I have been busy planning new units to match the common core, while keeping up with my family. So if you have any suggestions on how to do it, please share!
We have been busy in school and created a cute little craft to go along with learning how to write summaries. ( I forgot to take pictures, but will try this week ) We are just finishing up a mini-unit on Greek mythology, including allusions. Tomorrow and Tuesday we will be watching Disney's Hercules and compare/contrast the movie to what we know about Hercules, while watching for anything we learned in our mythology unit. I highly recommend the Greek Mythology unit from Nicole Shelby which you can find here. I just absolutely LOVE her stuff and used many items from her FABULOUS unit!
I'm off to finish some lessons for the week and try to wrap some Christmas presents later! Have a fabulous week!
