I’ve been off for exactly a month but that’s because my students and I have been crazy at school, having fun and READING!! My little kindergartener’s are reading 🙂 and somewhat writing and coming along in their academics. I just love watching those little eyes grow when they hear themselves read or “sound out” a word and READ it… best part for me as a teacher!!! If I could add a bunch of Emoji happy faces with heart eyes here I would!!! lol!
This past month we did a thematic unit on our state (New Mexico and Our State Animal: Black Bear) which lent itself to a whole STEM, Social Studies, Reading & Math Common Core Aligned Lesson and I’m sharing it with you all today!
We started off by learning about New Mexico, our State Flag, and the Zia Symbol.
This link (see below) has so many resources it was wonderful! Did you know New Mexico even has a State Dinosaur?? We didn’t!!
