Planning for October is always lots of fun! I love all the things we study in 2nd grade that tie into themes/curriculum for this month.
Sound - Bats and echolocation - Stellaluna and nonfiction bat books
Life Cycles - Pumpkins - I have several nonfiction books for this too!
Witches and Monsters - Character Traits - Too many books to name - Check out this post for a list.
As I sit on the couch with the TV playing, I start to get
really excited annoyed it is debate time! Listening to the responses, I realized I want to know what the kiddos think of the candidates this year. We have not even talked about it at all. I love hearing their take on the commercials and what their parents have been saying. In the past, during elections I have used Kids Voting USA. I usually hold an election in the class as well. I am working on some new writing activities and a interactive smart notebook. I hope to finish it this week. Once I am finished I will share some of the things I create for elections. What are you planning?
