Get ready for some laughter with these crazy, yet factual adventures of my life with my puppy. As you will learn, I was actually a teacher and retired when the clock struck thirty-two years! Even though I had never owned a dog, for some strange reason I thought a puppy would become my full-time companion settling into a calm and relaxing life. That dream cloud quickly dissipated the day after getting my puppy as my life took a drastic change in every direction! Besides continuously saying "What did I get myself into?" usually at 3:00 a.m. standing in my backyard and acquiring a continuous head twitch because of shaking my head "no", my life has been filled with unconditional love and laughter.
The story is a snippet in the lives of Emmy and me, Mrs. Doodles. She is a miniature "Double Doodle" which means she is a cross between a Labradoodle and a Goldendoodle. This is also how I got my (aka) name! While enjoying the silly antics of my puppy and seeing pictures as she grows, the goal for each set is to support first through fifth grade students' learning.
"Achoo" is the SIXTH SET of a series. Each set includes a 2-3-page story about Emmy and learning activities that are intended to be used to enhance foundational skills at the teacher's discretion depending on his/her students' abilities. As you will see, first graders may need teacher modeling with whole group work, while fifth graders will be able to do the pages independently. No matter if your students do the activities alone, with partners, in small groups, or as a whole group, they will surely appreciate the fun and learning that transpires! Seeing pictures of Emmy growing with each set will charm your students as Emmy looks like a sweet and innocent little girl. Hmmm…...you will soon learn the truth!
This set includes:
Pictures of Emmy
Sneak Peek for Next Story
Comprehension: True or False Sentences
Vocabulary-Syllables and Definitions
Writing-Predict why Mrs. Doodles said, “Emmy, what have you done?”
