PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This bundle is all about Black History and includes four of my best selling products! Here is information about each product, so you don't have to travel to different sites...


Famous Folks of Black History (152 pages, $11.00)
****A 50 Top Best Seller****

This is by far my favorite and I had a blast creating it (and learned a lot also!) Inspired by the most adorable clip art from Melonheadz, this Famous Folks of Black History unit has a whopping 152 pages, my largest product! It focuses on the following African-American Heroes:
Ruby Bridges-First Student to Desegregate a School

Martin Luther King Jr.-Civil Rights Activist

Frederick Douglass-Civil Rights Activist

Jesse Owens-Olympic Track and Field Record Holder

Jackie Robinson-Major League Baseball Player

Harriet Tubman-Civil Rights/Women's Rights Activist, Underground Railroad Conductor, Abolitionist, Civil War Spy & Nurse (You Go Girl!

Phillis Wheatley-Poet

Thurgood Marshall-US Supreme Court Justice

George Washington Carver-Scientist/Inventor

Benjamin Banneker-Astronomer/Scientist/Almanac Publisher

To make use of the wonderful clip art in the unit, I provided a HUGE full-page timeline that utilizes each hero's illustration and date card. There is a smaller version for those of us with limited wall space. There is a short bio card for each that highlights their major life accomplishments (and teacher cheat sheet!). Each Famous Folk has an illustrated, informational text passage that is a page long. To provide variety for all teachers, there is a form of a Thinking Map for each hero~Bubble, Tree, Circle, KWL, and Venn Diagram. There are numerous comprehension activities: ABC Order, Matching, and Word Searches. Also included are a set of vocabulary cards to be used for a word wall...There's a word sort and Write the Room activity that can be used with the cards. There are three Bulletin Board Kits, that utilize the most adorable fonts I've come across and provided for you (You can view it in the downloadable preview). One board is made after MLK and has the students make Dream Mobiles with realistic cloud lettering. The second is a set of lettering for an overall Famous Folks of Black History Board, featuring tribal print. The last board is a replica of the Famous Folk Bio Cards and has the students make their own Bio Cards. There is a coloring book with a page for each hero. Also you'll find in this product is a Making Words Center with sparkly glitter letters. And lastly there is an craftivity in which students create their own American Superhero, which can also be made into a bulletin board and comes complete with a class book and several types of writing/picture pages for compositions. I've provided you with a cover letter and 4 pages of thoughts and notes for implementation.

I'm sure you'll find this product very useful for Black History Month and it will last longer than one month, as all the Famous Folks highlighted are worthy of! This is my favorite product and I'm sure you'll see all the academic and character benefits of implementing it. PLEASE download the preview to see what you'll be receiving!

Black History Activity Bundle
(72 pages, $8.00)
Here's another wonderful and meaningful 72-page product from Black History Headquarters...A Black History Activity Bundle! What I love most about this product are the vivid and bright colors throughout; fun tribal-like prints are included in Table Signs and Book Covers. The three books include writing stationary for grades 1-5, which makes this unit very versatile. What also sets this unit apart from others is that it mainly focuses on Black History in general, with a few exceptions. For example, this unit includes:

Black History Making Words
Black History Thinking Maps (Circle, Bubble, KWL, Venn)
Black History Heroes Personal Big Book and Mini-Book
Black History Personal Big Book (to record learning during your Black History Month teaching and activities; i.e., "Today I Learned...")
Black History Hall of Fame
Fact (Cootie) Catcher
Word Wall Cards (w/Blank Cards)
Proud to Be Me Class Book w/Poem and Color Cover
Personal Flag Craftivity (modeled after Black History Flag Example)
Coloring Pages (Martin, Ruby, Rosa, Friendship, Freedom)
Table Signs (1-9)

The Word Wall Cards include Famous Folks such as MLK Jr., Ruby Bridges, Rosa Parks, George Washington Carver, Harriet Tubman, Oprah Winfrey, Barack Obama, and Malcolm X. This unit will be perfect to accompany whatever you're teaching for Black History due to the versatility of the activities and how they can be generalized to any Black History Hero. I strongly encourage you to download the preview to see the bright colored pages and what the product exactly contains. Of all my Black History products, I'd say this one has the most practicality for the price!

Come Learn with Ruby Bridges (69 pages, $7.00)
One of my favorite "little people" is Ruby Bridges; she is the kick-off to our classroom celebration of Black History Month because of her importance in history to all children.

Written specifically around Kinder, First and Second Common Core Standards, each center and activity focuses on one of the above Famous Folks, in either the ares of literacy or math.

Specifically, these are the centers/skills of focus:
Math:

In addition, I've included a full-page, illustrated poster that gives a brief background of the Famous Folks' most notable accomplishments. I added this bonus so this product could be used as a stand-alone teaching tool; so if you don't have much time or the resources to reach and teach about Black History, then your students will receive some background about these history greats also. The graphics used are from the ever-so-popular Melonheadz and will grab your kiddos attention. These enrichment centers are interactive and will challenge your students, while there's an element of differentiation involved with each. So even your ESL/ELL and Special Education students can benefit from using them.
