I actually have like 2 weeks worth of Seuss lessons, so be prepared...lol...don't worry, I will post non- Seuss stuff too :)
I had my kids make bookmarks, but I wanted to add in some fun skills...like sewing...yeah, I know. But you'd be surprised at how HARD this was...especially for some of my most artsy kids! I bought the plastic yarn needles and they used those to sew the yarn through the holes in their bookmarks. OH, p.s...these are the bookmarks from Melissa that she made..I glued them to black paper and laminated them.
See the SERIOUS concentration?? I love it! ha!
Also, remember when I was looking for a pen pal in a different state?? Well, I got a response from a different COUNTRY!! LOOK at where we're sending our letters too!!
Thank you so much to everyone who offered to be our pen pals!!! I wish I could have picked all of you!!
Thanks Suzy Q! :)
And in other news....here's my Pirate A.R. pack....I took what I've been doing in my room with A.R. and made it into a little pack, all organized.
There are pirate bookmarks with A.R. levels, genre and book series graphs, reading logs and A.R. quiz logs, bulletin board pieces so they can "sail" to each island as they grow in A.R. points, monthly goal sheets and a certificate if/when they reach that month's goal, a poster for skill focus during reading (with ideas on what to do for the skill focus), and a letter to the parents.
If you would like a different theme (like Seuss or under the sea or what have you), I am open to suggestions!!
Also, I know some of you do reading counts, and I was trying to make this fit for that as well, but I don't know enough of that program. If you are someone who wants this set made for Reading Counts, please let me know and we can work it out!
On another note, get your "goof off" ready, because here comes the SAP! lol
