Thanks and Some Freebies!

Hey yall! Happy Sunday! This is going to be just a real quick post, then I'm back to enjoying my long weekend :)

First of all, a huge thank you to Ms. T from Journey of a Substitute Teacher. She gave my little blog a shout out and brought me lots of new followers! Thanks so much! I was so excited to see that I had gained 10 new followers in one day! Now that 100 follower goal doesn't seem so far off.

I am loving seeing all this Dr. Seuss stuff all over. It is probably one of my favorite weeks of the year. Unfortunately, our Dr. Seuss week is cut pretty short this year, because our school is doing benchmark testing (again?!?) that week. So we have to keep our fun to a minimum, with the majority of our activities saved for that Friday. However, I did manage to create some extra literacy centers that we can use throughout the week. But since I have already posted my On the Loose with Dr. Seuss unit, I've decided to post them here for free!

In our reading series, we will be working on long i words...


...and we will be working on word endings (-s, -ed, and -ing).


Does anyone else have the Story Town reading series? I actually love this reading series! I feel that it is very comprehensive and offers easy differentiated lessons. I always supplement with some reading centers, though. What are your thoughts on this series?
