Wild About Us! Freebie

I recently discovered an adorable book called Wild About Us! by Karen Beaumont. It is a super sweet book about animals celebrating their differences. As I read it, I realized it was a perfect text to have students model to celebrate themselves.

From wrinkly skin to huge feet, from long noses to spots, the animals don't make fun of differences, they embrace them!

I've created this super simple freebie to get students writing about (and celebrating) what makes them wild about themselves. You can click {HERE} or the picture below to grab it.

You could even use this to make a fun Wild About Us! class book to begin or end the year!

Counting down the days . . .

Well, hello there. Long time no blog. Actually, it's not that long since my usual blogging schedule is only about once a month!

So, what has been going on? Well, all kinds of end of year craziness. All over the blog, Facebook, Pinterest world, I keep getting bombarded with reminders that each day, teachers are entering summer vacation, buuuuttttttt, we are not quite there yet. A few more weeks to go still and I am scrambling to get things done.

Math, science, reading. We are trying to cram it in, but unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on if you're asking the teachers or the students!), there is so much stuff coming up. Oh, well. I guess that's the end of year teacher life.

If you are like me and seem to be (lacking extra prep time), and need a little help during these weeks, check out my end of year and summer resources. From Daily Language & Math reviews to Word Problems to printables and freebies, there are a ton of no-prep and low-prep options from which to choose:

And if you're finished the school year already (lucky you!), then you might be interested in some of the classroom decor packs I am sllloooowwwly creating. You can check out some of the latest below:

If you're interested in any of the above packs, just click the pics!

Whether you're on summer break or counting down the days, have a great rest of the week!
