I have been following the directions and am trying, trying, trying to get a background for my blog, but am having zero success. I think I am going to ask my children to help me. I have a feeling they will be able to do it very quickly. I have been going to some garage sales lately. I know a lot of you are doing the same. I found two bingo games for homonyms and parts of speech. Homonyms seem to be a big part of the Common Core for third grade. I also found a book that ties in Children's literature with social studies themes. I am planning to use many, many, many mentor texts with my lessons. I am currently gathering information and sources. I hope to post these mentor texts with my lesson ideas in a future post(s).
It is amazing how fast this summer is going by. I am almost panicking, because there is so much I want to accomplish for school in the fall, for my family, and for my home!
