Visual Plans for the last week of April

My week got side-tracked a bit last week. . . . sub on Tuesday, a doctor visit for me on Wednesday. Bleh. What a week. I've been under the weather & neglecting my poor little blog. Here's hoping for a better week this week!

We're going to be finishing up learning about rocks, & then starting with plants. Things are getting super busy! We only have 24 days left. . . . end of the year testing has begun, and I'm trying to get everything in. Wow! Only 24 days left! That's exciting . . . and just a little bit scary!

I found a cute little freebie to go along with the book Greedy Apostrophe: A Cautionary Tale by Jan Carr. I actually just ordered it from Amazon after finding the freebie on TpT. Can't wait to read the book to my kiddos! According to the description on Amazon, "It's the moment all the punctuation marks have been eagerly awaiting: assignment time, There are plenty of open positions for apostrophes as contractions soon there's only one job left--for a possessive--and only one apostrophe to fill it: non other than Greedy Apostrophe. It's not long before his greed gets out of hand, and he jumps into signs where he doesn't belong." Sounds like a fun book! 

I'm linking up with DeeDee's Peek at My Week Linky. Pop over and check out others' visual plans.


  1. Ooh, I'm going to check out that book now. When I taught apostrophe s I told the kids he was greedy! Now with a book they have to believe me...not just their cooky teacher that gives punctuation and letters personalities. lol

  2. Great plans! This book sounds like a wonderful book to add to a classroom for teaching. Thank you for sharing it!
