Happy 4th of July Friends!
I hope you all have fun plans and will be out and about celebrating summer at its finest.
I wanted to stop in today with a quick teacher tip and freebie for you and since it's the 4th of July it only made sense to give it a bit of Patriotic Flair.
I have written a few detailed posts about preparing for a substitute teacher. It is especially important to have a good emergency sub plan in place. However, there will be times when you won't be out of the classroom for an entire day, but you may unexpectedly be called out for a short period of time. It's a good idea to have a few activities that can stand alone and easily be executed by anyone who happens to be filling in for you. I recommend a read aloud and a simple follow up activity.
Today's freebie can be used for that purpose.
It includes 2 versions of a mini-poster of The Pledge of Allegiance, a list of essential questions about the Pledge and intermediate and primary journaling pages. Below is a list of suggested books to pair with it. Click on any of the images to read reviews and descriptions on Amazon.
Do you need some literacy activities for Veterans Day? This Veterans Day writing packet can be used over and over again with any writing prompt and will save you time prepping and planning. The set includes differentiated versions that make it easy for you to modify the work to meet the individual needs of your students.
