M.I.A., Holidays, & Freebie Round Up

Firstly, I know it has been too long since I posted. I am sorry...I am a bad blogger :(  Life got in the way Life became a priority.  I have had some tragic events occur and although there is sorrow I am trying to find the joy that will come of hard as it may seem.
I had every intention of getting this up BEFORE Thanksgiving, but we see how well that worked out.  Anyways please store this easy activity away for next year!  I made these quick printables for the kids and they worked with a partner on the Scholastic website to write down some important event from the journey on the Mayflower and then compare and contrast Indians and Pilgrims.

I am not sure if it is just my class, but I can NEVER find enough time for writing.  We had a three day week during Thanksgiving so it was the perfect opportunity to get this important skill some practice.  I found this freebie that made it SO easy to let each child be successful in their writing!  I followed the ideas she suggested using the post its for brainstorming and categorizing and it worked like a charm!!

I also found some awesome freebies on TPT.  Some I used for homework, class work, work on words, and even extra credit over the short break!  All images are linked back to the TPT store where they can be found!
