PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Who among us, student and teacher alike, has not stepped over an unpleasant task and assigned it to an undetermined future date? For a select group, piddling around is standard procedure. Procrastination, it seems, is pretty much one of the common denominators of human behavior. So why would we be surprised that the second week in March is designated as NATIONAL PROCRASTINATION WEEK--that is, unless it gets put off until sometime later.

This free download, entitled BETTER LATE THAN NEVER, acknowledges Procrastination Week's existence and then delves into vocabulary with the letters L-A-T-E hidden in their spellings.

Students are instructed to use the given definitions and clues to fill in missing letters and unmask 35 different "late" words. Some of the terms will be familiar, but others will be more difficult to identify, if and when your students get around to them.

This is AWESOME! I can't wait to try it with my students. My own son (in 8th gr.) wants to try it as well. (He came to look over my shoulder when I laughed out loud at your cover picture.) I MAY share it with my PD leader, per mlrodgers comment. I believe the cover will have to go on my wall as a poster! Thank you so much!

You have made my day! Thanks so much for the good rating and the positive comments. Say hello to your son for me. Glad he likes the product!

Love this, but not for my students. This week is our "March" Break and I will bring this in for the teachers' first day back (without students). It will be a fun way to kick-start our brains! Thank you!
On  February 27, 2012Margaret Whisnant answered:
What a good idea! I would love to be there to watch a group of teachers take this on!
