Sunday Scoop time!

It's been awhile since I've done a Sunday Scoop with Teaching Trio so here we go! 


Have to do...
It's Golden Archer Award time in Wisconsin! I begin my six week unit on it this Friday with the first group so I have to decide which of the five nominated titles I am going to read first and then what activity I am going to do. This is probably my most favorite time of the year in the library! 
WEMTA is our state library and technology association and registration just opened for the annual Spring conference. The sooner you register the cheaper it is! You should check it out - it is definitely worth attending!! 

Hope to do...
I recently created a research organizer for second grade space research and I hope to get it posted to TPT ASAP! 
Also, the littlest is changing sizes yet again so I need to get the too small out and the next size in! 

Happy to do...
I'm trying to read a bunch of the historical fiction that is on our 4th grade list as the unit is fast approaching. Our Only May Amelia by Jennifer L. Holm is my current read and I am almost done. It's pretty good but I feel that the fourth graders will miss a bunch of things in the text. However, because they are more the character's age, I also believe that they will really enjoy it and hopefully it gets them a bit emotional as it is a very emotionally charged book! 

I hope you have a great week!

  1. When I was student teacher we did a unit on historical fiction too! I think those were the hardest books to get through - however, I think they can be so beneficial and create lots of emotions! Good luck!
