Happy Saturday! Hope you are having a wonderful start to the weekend! We're enjoying some cooler weather and hoping to catch up on some relaxation! We're posting today to share our experience with The Product Swap, organized by Jessica Stanford at Mrs. Stanford's Class. We were partnered with Tamara Russell from Mrs. Russell's Room.
Tamara has many common core goodies in her TpT store. We selected her Dr. Martin Luther King Mini-Unit. Although we haven't had a chance to try this out with our kiddos, we really thought this little gem would really come in handy next year to fill a gap in our teaching materials.
This unit has enough resources (printables and a PowerPoint!) it could stand alone as the only thing you'll need to teach about the importance of Dr. King (of course you'll have to add in a few good books).
We love how Tamara has included a Power Point file in this unit. We are all about using our SMART Boards for Social Studies and Science time! Our county has many curriculum resources (this interactive and technology pieces) for Intermediate grades, but not Primary. We love this idea of having a Power Point built into the unit!
Tamara has create many useful printables in this packet that help students student the importance of Dr. King's work and then relate themselves to Dr. King. We think is is a wonderful opportunity for students to recognize the abilities they have in life to help spread peace and kindness!
Thanks so much, Tamara, for sharing this wonderful unit with us! Be sure to stop by Tamara's blog at Mrs. Russell's Room and get to know this fellow first grade teacher and blogger!
