Most of what I am posting today goes with our Scott Foresman Story, Ruby in Her Own Time. Many of you can use it. This story is about changes in our student's lives. I am also going to make a timeline to view changes as they age. I will post the rest of the unit soon.
Here is the book:
I am not a huge fan of Scott Foresman so I make a ton of stuff to supplement. I pretty much teach the "skill of the week", but do it my way and not what is in the manual. This is my first year teaching this series, and I am already bored with it. The students do not like the stories. Thank goodness for my shopping addiction!!! I have a wealth of good literature and BIG BOOKS!!!! Love Ebay for some BIG BOOKS cheap!!!! I'd love to hear anyone else who uses SF and what they do with the series. I know Waltke's web (not a big fan) and a few others. Anything different????
I think it is up to me and Mrs. Arnold to Fancy up Scott Foresman for all of us EXCELLENT, STELLAR, SUPERSTAR TEACHERS!!!!!
