Happy Sunday! I’m kind of sad to be saying that actually. How do the weekends always fly by so fast??
I’m linking up to Amanda and Stacia to share a book we are using in Social Studies as we chug along in our government unit.
It’s by Jean Fritz, an author I love!
I love her work because she writes such great, humorous nonfiction! Shh! We’re Writing the Constitution is no different. She brings to life a subject that is pretty dry and boring (in my opinion). You hear details of the Constitutional Convention and its fifty-five delegates, and of course, how decisions were made. If you can’t get your hands on a copy of the book, you can always watch the SchoolTube video of it!

I am using this book along with my Heroes of the American Revolution Unit. My kids loved the scavenger hunt! I’m so sad I forgot to take pictures when they did it. I put the color biographies around the room and they moved in groups of three to read and fill in the parts of the hunt.
Friday, I had a Pin It To Win It contest! Here are the lucky winners! Thanks so much for playing!
Also, I wanted to give you the heads up for Workshop Wednesday this week!
Sorry I’ve not been very good about giving you the topics on Sunday like I’m supposed to… but I will try, I promise! This week, we will be sharing writing tips- What tips can you give other teachers for teaching writing, or what tips do you give students? Can’t wait to hear them! :o)
