Up and At ‘Em {plus giveaway news!}

Good Morning!

Today’s post goes down in history. It is the first time I have blogged besides my “Favorite Things” Linky in foreverrrrrrr. So sorry about that!

I recently added this little gem to my TpT shop:


I became pretty obsessed with “Read the Room” activities this past year.  Except in 2nd Grade, my guys and gals have a little more freedom…they read the room and the hallway. We're super adventerous like that!

I came up with calling these activities “Walk Abouts” in my room and it stuck!  My kids are always all, “Can we make this a walk-about activity, pleeeeeeease.”

Usually I say, “Yes!  That was the plan”.  I love to get them up and moving. And the sneaky side of me loves that I’m making them do all the same work they’d normally do at their seats, only disguised as fun. 

I’m going to get them moving right off the bat this year with my “Back to School Walk-About: R/LA Edition”.  It’s 4 activities in 1, so I can spread out the skills as we progress throughout the year. Or I can differentiate based on the range of needs of my little ones. I haven’t decided yet. I still have about 2 1/2 months before any hard core decision making needs to take place!

The skills covered in the Walk About include: Name the Picture, ABC Order, Categories, and Plural vs. Singular Nouns.  The Name the Picture activity was added at a suggestion of a blogging buddy who teaches Kindergarten…a fun activity my 2nd grade brain doesn’t even think about.  All in all, this unit is great for grades K-3.  Since it’s “school themed” {as opposed to holiday themed} you can use it all year, as the skills of your guys and gals progress.

You can win this “Walk About” by heading over to my Facebook page and entering there.  Of course if you’re impatient, you can grab it from TpT by clicking here.

And that reminds me, I’ll be doing Flash Sales, Giveaways, and Freebies all summer long via Facebook, so make sure to click the button below and “like” me!
