Yes the month of May is just about here!
You know, that month when school is almost out but NOPE not really.
The kiddos are "checking out" and you still have curriculum to teach.
Well let's take a look at some packets that just might help you..MAKE MAY MEANINGFUL!
Let's start with Cinco de Mayo on May 5th.
What a perfect time to compare and contrast another country with ours and learn about an event celebrated here and there.
Soon after comes Mother's Day.
An ideal time to celebrate our family.
This packet is filled with reading, writing, word work, and even some math.
There is a craft and even a gift for mom.
The end of the month brings Memorial Day!
For many the start of summer but this day means so much more.
Help your class understand the reason for the holiday.
Need an extra minute...how about these word searches with May themed word finds.
And I love these little mini books...print, fold, read...even color.
Read as a partner...read as a group.
I love the poems for May dedicated to Mom's Day, Fireflies, Baseball and Summer.
Read, write, and sequence.
These are ideal for assessing comprehension skills.
They come with lesson plans, I can cards, activities, and literature suggestions.
May covers...Waiting for Wings, Planting a Rainbow, Fancy Nancy's Marvelous Mother's Day Brunch, From Tadpole to Frog.
Take the comprehension a step up and add writing to it with the May "Let's Write" packet filled with differentiated writing activities to build writing strategies using the same 4 stories.
And oh my!
Using Rainbow Fish and The Hungry Caterpillar your class will practice writing strategies and the final products will be perfect for decorating a bulletin board or locker.
And what fun you will have with this book companion from the Old Lady Series.
An I can't think a better way to start your morning or afternoon than using this interactive May calendar journal.
It ends with a journal page for each day and a math review.
May instruction can be meaningful!
