So if you have been keeping up with things here you know that I have been out of work for quite a while. I am happy to report that I am going back to work on Monday. Going back to work and seeing my firsties is going to be good for my heart. I have enjoyed my time at home being able to get things done, run errands, etc.... doing the things that I would've done over Christmas break. I don't think that I could ever be the spokesperson for 2nd trimester pregnancy loss, but I will tell you that my heart still feels broken. I can't watch TV shows with babies in them. I can't pin things on Pinterest for my "Dreaming of a Girl" board. I'm not sure how long this part will last... but I am ready to get back to work and focus my thoughts. Thank you to you guys for reading, for sweet comments, and for hanging with me.
I have been SO very busy the last few weeks making things for my classroom when I return. Some of those things I have put on TpT, but some of them are going to be special and just for my kiddos. One of the products that I worked the hardest on... and I am the most proud of is my 8 Famous African Americans pack. February is Black History Month and I wanted to be ready. I looked on TpT to try to find something, but I didn't see anything that jumped out at me. SOOO, I decided to make my own. The pack features 8 Famous African Americans including: Booker T. Washington, Fredrick Douglass, George Washington Carver,
Jackie Robinson, Jesse Owens, Sojourner Truth, Ruby Bridges, and
For each historical figure, you will find 1 graphic organizer, 1 page in
the coloring book, a reading passage, comprehension questions AND a
Each mini-foldable takes just ONE sheet of paper!!! This makes it very
easy for students to make the books themselves by folding the paper twice!
I printed everything out last night and my own personal firstie was very excited and wanted to know if he could do a foldable book and color it. Ummmm, YES! As you prepare for Black History Month in your classrooms... I hope that this packet might be just what you're looking for. If you wanna take a peek... you can find it HERE! Now for your freebie... here is a Black History Month poster to display in your classroom and a quote by Booker T. Washington! FREEBIE... Enjoy!!!
