This is a 95 page packet that includes SO many activities for you to use in your classroom. It has 3 readers' theaters, countless writing/art/public speaking activities, and fun games. One of the goals of Chalkboard Blessings is for each of us to be a blessing to one another. For this reason, if this packet contains something you cannot use in your classroom, gift it to a colleague that can! Another goal of CB is for upper grade students and lower grade students to come together! Find an activity in this packet that will work for that!
