I'm taking a break from my glue gun and school crafts to show 2 products that are currently 50% off. A disclaimer... it's all about California today!
I have decided I like writing reading passages. Every year I teach these units, and every year I wish I could find Reading Passages that spoke about the men and women that my kids learn about. I finally decided to write them myself.
Native California Tribes: Miwok, Cahuilla, Chumash, Yokut, and Pomo Tribes
California Explorers: Juan Cabrillo, Francis Drake, and Sebastian Vizcaino
These are the same format as each other. Passages, strategy grids, multiple choice, short answer, answer keys, thinking maps... everything I could think of to get my students to dive deeper. My own boys were my testers - we have gone over a lot of interesting facts over the past weeks. I personally am so thankful that I don't live back in the 1500's or even the 1700's. Some of it grossed me out!
Check them out if you're interested! Now head back to Chalk One Up for the Teacher to check out the other deals. :)
