Social Studies Card Game ***FUN Test Prep***

I created very basic cards with PASS-like questions for my 5th graders to use this week as they prepare for next week's Social Studies test. I will be printing these on card stock and placing the answers on the back.

Even though they are bland, you are more than welcome to leave a comment for the Word Doc with these and more questions.

Gorgeous Day for a Field Trip

To culminate our Ecosystem Unit, our grade level went to the beautiful Brookgreen Gardens. The children were able to see a freshwater habitat by way of a pontoon boat guided by a volunteer. Many of my students had never been on a boat, so they were excited!

We managed to see populations of Cypress trees, old rice plantations, fiddler crabs, herons, and above all ALLIGATORS! Wow! There were some scary ones out their---thank goodness we were on a protective boat!

It's always fun to step out of the classroom and utilize what you have taught in a natural environment.

If you are ever near Georgetown, SC take a's worth it!

Common Core Reading ANCHOR CHARTS!!

Well, I am still on Spring Break, but I did spend a few hours on school work! My non-teacher friends and family think I am crazy---but everyone out there in the Teacher Blog-e-sphere know why I did this!!!!

Being prepared in advance=success!

These anchor charts are NOT actually in NEON, I was having some fun with Picassa (google's photo editor).
