Waaaa!!! My vacation is rapidly coming to an end! Although, I guess I am only half-serious because I am anxious to get back and work on our last major projects for the year. BUT...I am going to be out the Monday we get back! I have to go to a testing workshop with a colleague and, while I normally don't mind workshops, I am not thrilled about missing the first day back with my class. I always feel like that's a crucial lets-get-back-to-work day, don't you?
So, in efforts to still launch the units for the end of the year, I am working on some graphic organizers my wonderful substitute can use with my class while I am gone. The KWHL chart shown above will be used to launch the study of our state, for Social Studies. I left this version open-ended, so you guys could download and use if you'd like as well.
I think this should come in handy for our last units: our state study/research project and our ecosystems unit. What units are you working on for the remaining weeks??
