Thank you so much for looking at this mini-unit! It was truly a labor of love. You have to love something if you are going to cozy up to it and work with it for hours on end! This mini-unit and I have bonded. Earth Day has a super powerful impact when taught with hands-on activities, opportunities to create, interacting with great literature and given time to process thinking through talking and writing! Each of those are thoroughly addressed within the pages of this mini unit!
If you purchase (I hope you do!) and like this mini-unit, please, please provide feedback! You will get TPT credits to shop with!!!. I also ask that you click to follow me. I will be posting other units and super cute, fun grab and go ideas to begin the school year and much more in the next couple months! I have been a TPT lurker for a couple years and now am ready to share the wealth of my 23 years of teaching through creative activities and lessons!
I promise to always ensure the kids have relevant activities which foster creativity and higher level thinking! I am a National Board certified teacher and am a staunch proponent of ensuring I honor each child’s intellect, and do all I can to move them along the learning continuum. But, with little ones, hands-on and fun are the language we need to consistently incorporate to ensure we are developmentally correct in our approach to curriculum…Common Core….hang in there with me. We will do it!
Through my district, I have had intensive training with Ellin Keene, Debbie Miller, Katie Wood Ray, Ruth Culham, Katherine Bomer and Greg Tang. Yes, I have a wealth of information to share! I am so ready to do just that! Please follow me! Together we can ~ Conquer the Common Core
