This past week has been amazing and so heartwarming! Thank you to all my followers and all my friends who have join me on this awesome celebration! I have seen so many entries and so many messages with a "thank you" and congratulations! Thank you ALL so very much!!
I am very happy to write this blog post! I get very excited on these upcoming days! There is no secret I enjoy celebrating and I JUST LOVE Read Across America Day! I have so much fun reading and doing activities with my students about THAT cat and other characters! :)
First of all, I wanted to share with you an oldie, but a goodie activity I did with my students before. Because we are not allowed to create anything relate to Seuss (or anything like that) and put it up on a selling website, I decided to make something with the products they provide at their own website! I got the patterns from Seussville on this link: http://www.seussville.com/Educators/educatorClassroomResources.php?id=printables#6
They have tons of different sheets and activities you can use :) I used the "Elephant Ears" sheet from there. The face of the elephant I just kinda drew it at that moment, but again, because we can't create anything to share, I don't even think I saved it (so sorry!). To make the dust speck, I got a bunch of green pipe cleaners and some sparkly pom-poms. My students colored the elephant and they cut and paste true/false statements based on the book. I think they would have came up better if we only used gray construction paper, but I really wanted them to do some coloring and make these on their own, instead of just cutting and gluing. Here is a picture of what they looked like! I was really happy how they turned out :)
I also want to share with you what might be a good activity for this upcoming days for those little ones and maybe up to 3rd grade if you are still working on rhyming :)
I have a UNIT SAMPLE for FREE! I have a memory game for rhyming words. This game can be played by 2 or more students (independently) or you can even use it during small groups (if that's a skill you are working on with them). I can think about a whole class demonstration as well if it's needed. Nevertheless, I think this simple and yet fun game can be a good fit for your class! :)
Here are some pictures on how the game goes.
This Freebie comes in both English or Spanish. If you get a chance to download it, I hope you come back to leave me your feedback! :)

After I created a sample, I knew I had to do a whole THEME UNIT. So, here is my unit with different centers for both Math and ELA or SLAR.
Both of the packets (Spanish and English) contains the following centers:
 Nouns vs. Verbs: instructions, 20 cards, answer key and activity sheet to give as an independent activity or use as an assessment.
 ABC order, 15 cards, instructions, answer key, and sheet to record their work.
 Writing Craftivity: Write about your favorite birthday and create a fun birthday cake!
 Fishy Probability: Mini cards to laminate and cut, instructions, Probability sheets, and Probability answer sheet.
 I knew it was true: addition and subtraction cards (with regrouping and without regrouping), instructions, 20 cards, answer key, and activity sheet to give as an independent activity or use as an assessment.
 Hooray for Arrays!: 20 cards (10 sets), instructions, and recording sheet to show work or use as an assessment.
