Guided Reading, Book Clubs, Novel Units...? Check this out!

Have you ever had to stay up late reading a children's novel so you could hold a meaningful conversation with your students? Have you ever spent so much time trying to find "the right" books for your class,  you gave up? Can you relate to this e-card?

 Yes, so can I. I am guilty of all "of the above"!

Although we still have about 11 days of school left (but who is counting?? hahaha), I am already planning for next year. I started by taking down every possible thing in my classroom that was related to zebra print. Yes, I know, it's sad. If you know me, you know my classroom is known as the zebra print room. It was a fun three years of hot pink and zebra, but the time has come for a make over. Stay tuned for pictures!! 

Another huge change is that I will not only be teaching ELA, but also Social Studies and Science. This was a scary change at first, but thanks to my supportive blogger friends and teacher friends at school, I am okay with it. I am ready to rise to the challenge and excel with a new curriculum (or two).

Because I will only be teaching once class of ELA, I will be able to focus more on book clubs. I am super excited to get to know my students better and be able to read more books with them. When I found out about this Educents deal, I knew I HAD to get it. I will most likely use ALL of these ideas next year!  Not only will it be useful then, but also during summer school. I plan on getting book clubs started for my July friends as well!

 I have teamed up with Educents with some instant downloads for you! It includes activities for so many of your favorite stories you will be reading this summer (and even a few downloads you can use with any book!

Our products included will surely be loved by your students! Our Riding Freedom unit is one of our best sellers. Have you read this book yet? I've blogged about it multiple times, it is AMAZING, can be incorporated into Social Studies easily, and can be purchased through Scholastic with bonus points!! What more could you want? Oh yes, this awesome packet of questions, written responses, activities, and even a end of story test. This is LOW prep and is an excellent text to promote strong class discussion!

Speaking of class discussion, have you seen our accountable talk discussion cards? These are a must have. You can print a set out for each student, a table, or just one for the class. They can be used so many ways. Before long students will be "piggy backing" off of each others' thoughts and holding academic discussions that will knock your socks off! These awesome cards can be printed in color or in black and white. I have multiple sets floating throughout my room for students to refer to at all times.

For a limited time THIS WHOLE SET is just $19.99 from Educents which is about 78% off!  
18 instant downloads with over 700 pages of materials perfect to accompany your summer reading list! This is basically a WHOLE year's worth of book club material! This is great for a new teacher, someone looking for some new ideas, or even someone who is ready for a change!
