Letter Tt Craft Freebie & Peek at my Week! (Visual Plans)

Last week was super busy!  I promise to post pictures of all our letter Mm excitement in the next day or so.  :)

For this week we will be learning about trucks and machines that help us, letter Tt, numbers 0-5, and living and non-living things.  Take a peek at my week below but first I want to share a little craft I made to go along with our reading story and letter this week.

My husband helped me figure out how to create a tractor out of the letter t.  He even made the steering wheel t-shaped (isn't he clever?).  Download a copy for your class by clicking one of the pictures above.
Between our Moose and Muffins and Mickey and Minnie Day we didn't really get to our poetry, reader's workshop, and writer's workshop the way I had planned.  I'm re-using some of that again this week so I can cover those things more thoroughly.  We have parent conferences on Thursday evening and an in-service day on Friday so it is going to be a jam-packed 4 day week.  Click on the images to see my visual plans in a Googledoc.  Make sure and download the file if you are interested in making the links hyperactive (where they will lead you to where you can get your own copy).
Have a great week!

  3. Hi,
    I want to start by saying that your blog looks great! My name is Martin and I'm a teacher from Canada. I just started a new website called Resources4teaching where educators can buy and sell lessons and educational resources. We are new and are looking for people to join and put up their materials for sale on our website. We are having an iPad draw for the first 100 Vendors who join and upload at least 1 lesson /resource for sale on our website. There are absolutely no fees to join and you earn royalties of 70%. You can visit us at:
    I also created the Resources4teaching forums where educators can discuss education. Feel free to join us and start sharing your best practices and strategies.
    If you know any other teachers who might be interested in this Website, please forward this to them and if you have any questions, feel free to message me.

    Have a great day
