Jake Drake Teacher's Pet Literature Unit

I just finished a wonderful book Jake Drake Teacher's Pet!!!  I try to find different books for my guided reading groups, even though this book is an AR level 4.3 one of my groups is at that level.  I hope that after reading this book in group the students will be interested in more books by Andrew Clements.  You can get your copy of the literature unit at my TpT store.  I'm sure you will enjoy the story as much as I did.

Have a super week!

Base Ten and a Freebie

     Wow!  We made it to Thanksgiving vacation!  Our school has the entire week off for vacation.
     When we return to school I will be working with my students on a variety of base ten activities.  We will work with standard form, expanded form, number words, HTO charts, and drawing numbers.  I created a packet to use during my math workshop.  Lots of activities and a variety of suggestions for extension ideas are included.
     Visit my TpT for my Base Ten download.  Here is a freebie - Christmas Clip Art also at my Tpt store.  The clip art is an original product made by my daughter.

Happy Thanksgiving!
