Easily adaptable to any grade. Pinning this from another's blog. I did not come up with this myself! A book walk! I love this activity for so many reasons. 1) It is great for those who learn best through movement and touch. 2) It gets kids outside. 3) It uses realia to teach vocabulary. Fun fun fun! I must do this with my ESOL class at least once this year!

What Does the Principal Do All Day Poster Activity: A great common core aligned “copy and go” activity for the end of the year or to leave for the sub! It’s so fun to find out what your students think a principal really does all day. Two pages (with and without lines) are included. Sample directions included as well that could be projected on a smart board or placed under a document camera. A fun way to practice using your Common Core Informative/Explanatory writing skills.
