This is a biography bottle. The students used water bottles to make the body of the famous person they were studying. Most middle school social studies classes require a biography unit and this would be such a fun way to make a visual to go along with the presentation. LOVE THIS!!!!
The Best Story - one of the first books read each year in Writer's Workshop. It's great for teaching where writer's get their ideas. In the end, the main character learns that the best story comes from your heart. After reading it, give each student a paper heart and they fill it with words/pictures of the things/people they love.
Fall: Parent & Teacher Conference Reporting Form and Intervention Homework
This a great closure activity/strategy to any lesson. Students can reflect on their learning....
