Oklahoma and Tried It Tuesday: Roller Coaster Day

Oh my gosh. My heart hurts for all of the people in Oklahoma. My brain can't even fathom the teachers and students in the schools that were destroyed, and where some lost their lives. :( Seriously, that is my worst nightmare: to be at school and a natural disaster hits. It made me hug all of my children a little tighter today. :(

Since my emotions lately seem to be on a roller coaster (happy, sad, happy, sad!!!), I thought it would be perfect to pull out Erin's (from I'm Lovin' Lit) Roller Coaster Day Theme Unit today!
My kids had a BLAST with it! I bought it during the big TPT sale recently because it's advertised to leave for a sub, and I'm always looking for good things to take away my stress of sub plans if I have to be out....... but this was a PERFECT end of the year activity, too!! And I will gladly leave it for a sub next year- it was excellent! :)

I'm linking this up with Fourth Grade Flipper's Tried It Tuesday because I think you should DEFINITELY try it! :)
Make sure to go check out all the other awesome ideas on Holly's blog, too! :)

Don't forget to link up tomorrow for Workshop Wednesday!!
How do you have students respond to their reading? Let's share our ideas for reading responses! 


  1. You rock!! Thanks SO MUCH for the shout-out! I hope things are wrapping up soon for you.. tomorrow is our last day with kids and Friday is it for me! :)
    Thanks a million!

  2. How funny! I just used the Zoo Day today as a last minute sub plan, and I'm so bummed that I wasn't there to do it with them. It looked so great! I told Erin yesterday that it was going to be my Must Have for next week :o)

  7. This item is on my wishlist! It's on my summer to-do list to prepare this as a packet for a rare last minute emergency sub plan for next year.

    It's a great looking product. And I'm not just saying that because the state clip art she used is mine!

  9. Awesome!! I added it to my wish list! I could see the kids getting so excited for summer fun with this and of course they would barely realize they are learning! Perfect. Thanks so much for sharing!

  10. Thanks for thinking of us here in Oklahoma. Though much has been said about and much help directed to Moore, several other small communities have been hit as well. Not all are getting the support they need to cope with this devastation. See my Tuesday blog post and please continue praying for all these hurting people.



Thank you so much for stopping by! Please, leave me some love! :)
