What's That Falling From the Sky?!? - Ideas By Jivey: For the Classroom

What's That Falling From the Sky?!?

This Wednesday, I'm going to try my linky party again! As promised, I wanted to give you a head's up of the focus so you can be ready... this week, I'd like for us to look at Writer's Workshop! What is your must-have in Writer's Workshop? In other words, your Writer's Workshop would not be successful without... <fill in the blank>. Can't wait to see what you all have to link up with on Workshop Wednesday!! :)

Now, moving on to some exciting news... I know you were all chomping at the bit last week for this and it's finally here!!
I completed my Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs Unit with the ADORABLE Scrappin Doodle Spaghetti clip art (as well as their Breakfast clip art and BBQ clip art and Weather Kiddos clip art... do you see the disease I have here??) - it is jam packed with some great reading comprehension pages specific for this book! Go take a peek at it in my TPT store by clicking here, or on the picture above, or any of the previews of the items below!


Need a reason to buy it? Here are all the Common Core Standards you'll cover...
2nd Grade: RL.2.3, RL.2.5, RL.2.7, W.2.3, L.2.1
3rd Grade: RL.3.2, RL.3.5, RI.3.8, W.3.3, L.3.1
4th Grade: RL.4.1, RL.4.3, RI.4.5, W.4.3, L.4.1
(yes, I listed informational standards because it's the only place cause and effect is listed... do they really only expect us to use informational texts for that?? I think not.)

If you love using mentor texts in the classroom, be sure to check out Better Than Basal too!
It is packed with awesome activities you can use all year long!

  1. I would love it if cupcakes fell from the sky. Or steak. Or sushi. Hmm, it seems that pretty much any food would be awesome!

  2. That unit looks fantastic! I hope I win. It is a tough choice...but if I had to pick...I wish chocolate mousse would fall from the sky. In a cute little cup with a spoon. Not just pouring out everywhere! Thanks again for the tutorial yesterday!

  3. I'm thinking with state testing looming that some chocolate falling out of the sky around the school would be beneficial to many :)

  4. I would love brownies and Iced Mocha Coffee from Dunkin' Donuts to fall from the sky!! I'd also be 5,000 pounds, so it's probably a GOOD thing that this doesn't really happen!! Your unit looks SUPER DOOPER cute!! I can't wait to see your Tuesday post so I can get a clue!! =)

  5. I would love Reese's PB eggs to fall from the sky right into my mouth. I once saw a vat of the PB on Unwrapped. I'd also like to go swimming in that.

    BTW...I really like your blog design. It looks really familiar. Pink, blue & green are my favorite colors, too.

  6. I don't care what falls from the sky... all it would mean is that I don't have to cook!!!! LOL! But ice cream would be nice. Cookie dough ice cream. Yep. My mouth is watering!

  7. I'd love for Snickers bars to fall from the sky - Snack-size Snickers so that they wouldn't hurt if they hit you in the head :)

    1. I know I'm a "no-reply" blogger - I've had three people tell me in the last two days! I've tried fixing it (I followed the tutorial, but it's not working for some reason. I'm working on it...)

    2. Hahaha, great logic in the snack size so they don't hurt your head :)

  8. I'd like The Outback's meals to fall from the sky. I like all their food, so I would need a different item at each meal time. Yummy!!

    1. Sooo excited about your unit. Just bought the sequel "Pickles to Pittsburgh" from Scholastic's $1 sale. It'll save me time to use your unit. Hope I win :0) rjkime@juno.com

      I'd love sweet tea to pour from the sky!! I can drink it by the gallon!
