This packet consists of a year round cactus themed bulletin board and and lesson plan. The book connection ("Cactus Soup" by Eric Kimmel) and lesson plan is recommended for the first week of school, as you will most likely be discussing sharing and community, however, it can also be used at any point throughout the school year to reinforce concepts. The packet also includes extension activity suggestions and a short writing template with (editable) prompts, so that you can quickly add some student work to your bulletin! :) Last, but definitely not least, you can also snag some "I'm so glad they stuck you in my class!" tags for student gifts.
