ELA and Social Studies Lessons
- Viking project - After our ELA unit focusing on the viking history and Lore, the students drew their own viking ships and wrote a paragraph about what they had learned.
- Romans - After we completed our ELA unit on the Romans, students made their own Pompeii Village, had a readers theater for Androcles and the Lion, and made Roman Mosaic Art.
- Kansas history - during Kansas history month, I created a website to allow students to explore various aspects of Kansas, our symbols, famous Kansans, and even had a link for students to play Oregon trail.
I am an avid reader and book lover. In my classroom library we have hundreds of books. During every topic I like to feature different books to help students explore their topic on their own. I also allow students to volunteer to do a show and tell on a book or create a power point to present to the class that fits with our theme.
