American Symbols and a little Chocolate Fever!

This past week we read this story...
 
 

and I've been using some activities
from Deanna's America unit and the kids
have been loving it!
They are so interested in the history behind 
each of the symbols and just eat it all up. :)
 They each made a liberty bell and we wrote
facts on the back.
 
 
 
This is a printable activity I've had for a while
and don't remember where I got it from.
The kids did a great job of putting their
Statue of Liberty models together.
 
 
 We are going to contiue our study of symbols
into next week, but we will also be starting
a novel study for reading next week!
Can you believe this will be my last FULL week
of school?!?
 
I picked up Amy's Chocolate Fever unit and can't WAIT
to use it!
 
 
 
She has made the best activities to go along with this book!
I bought it even before I read the book because it just looked
so cute and sounded like a fun story that my students would love.
I read the book this morning and then made a few activities
for my students to work on this week for spelling.
Here's a little sample...
 





 
 You can pick up this little spelling pack in my TpT store
 
I'm dreaming up all sorts of chocolate treats I could make
my students this week.
Getting ready to hit up pinterest for more ideas so
my "getting ready to wear a swimsuit in 2 weeks plan"
might be in trouble!!!
