It's that time of year again.  You know the time where you have a ton on your plate, the kid's lose their minds and all your interim assessments come due.  Yet we still want to make everything in class as magical as possible.  It's because of all of those facts that I make my lessons as engaging, simple and short as possible.  My lessons will be 20 minutes to hold student's attention.  My text will be available in my classroom library or print and teach because I need to keep extra work to a minimum.    Below you will find my December calendar.  Can you believe I've planned a month out?

Each day this week we will be learning about a new arctic animal. I'll have differentiated text for the students and a graphic organizer.  You can see them in the picture below. On Friday students will get to chose an animal of their choice to research and make a poster about.  They'll have a graphic organizer to help guide them when creating the poster. Each lesson is short, meaningful and engaging.  Click on the picture below if you want to see the resource that I'm using.

Writing is getting serious. Students have come a long way since the beginning of the year.  Now it's time for some of the students to learn how to structure a paragraph.  We will extend our reading into writing where students will write about an arctic animal of their choice.  We'll make book covers to put the writing in.  I'm using a fabulous resource by More Time 2 Teach.

Each day my students who don't lose Dojo points will get to make a page marker like the ones shown below.  Most of the easier ones take under 10 minutes to create. The first couple of days we will start with simple plain ones.  The students will be able to sell their page markers at our classroom market day with classroom currency.  It's a great way to tie in behavior and social studies.  The how to video came from Red Ted Art on Youtube.  You can link to her account by clicking on the link in my Instagram post.
