Urban, Suburban, & Rural Areas....and a THANK YOU!

 Can I just say how much I appreciate
you all stopping by my little blog!!

I know a lot of you found your way here
from Cara's post last week.
She is sooooooooo sweet
and VERY generous to take the time
to introduce some of us newbie bloggers:)

This week has been all sorts of CRAZY!
Really, the last month has been out of control,
but in a good way:)

I can't wait to get a little free time
this week {hopefully} so I can 
follow all of my new readers' blogs, too!

 Here's a little something I did with my class this past
week to learn about the differences between
urban, suburban, and rural areas.
They had a blast making these posters
together. Everyone had a part and created 
something for each area.

Later, when we compared/contrasted the
different areas, these posters we SO
helpful to the kiddos and I could see
them studying them as I asked them
to tell me, "How is an urban area
different from a suburban area?"
Great visual cues!









I hope to post later this week about my Daily 5 progress.
Like I said before, I was kind of on the fence about
implementing Daily 5 this year.
Let me just tell ya, after completing beginning of the
year reading assessments...I'm becoming more
confident that this is the right thing to do:)
And, I'm having so much fun getting Daily 5
inspiration from fellow bloggers!

Have a great start to your week!

  1. Love the posters. When I taught this I had kids do a picture sort of the three areas, they really grasped on to the concept then. Thanks for sharing!

  4. I love this decent art which is representing the old traditions of human from the world. The assignmentman writing service is so knowledgeable for me.
