I don’t know why or how this happened but several people purchased my 101 packet in January. I was so surprised when I looked at my dashboard on TPT. Apparently I don’t get emails anymore when someone purchases something or leaves a comment. I will have to look in my spam folder.
Anyways, I was in the process of getting organized for 101 day in my classroom this week and I made some updates to the unit.
First I added a wonderful poem by Leroy Jackson, unfortunately I don’t remember where I found it. You can get the poem for FREE just CLICK HERE.
I made a homework sheet for it as well. I loved the poem because we are working on short and long i this week so it worked perfect for phonics.
In my updated unit I created one of those I SPY sheets and I am going to use it for adding three numbers. I left if blank in case you wanted to do something different. I also put in making small words with the big word Dalmatians. My class loves doing this activity.
I found a cute art idea on Pinterest. I will let the kids make their own and I want them to name their dogs. The children will do a writing assignment as well. I want them to write several facts about dogs. This dog is made by an adult, I know the first graders will create something just as cute. This is such a good idea. I can't wait to see their creations. I'll let you know how it works out.
