Animal Research Freebies and Currently

 We've been working VERY hard to finish up our animal research reports. A long while back, I found an anchor chart on Pinterest that was similar to the one you see below. I tweaked mine a bit to make it my own, though. I don’t know who the original creator was. If you know, please tell me so I can give them credit.

We also finished up using PebbleGo (love!) in the computer lab. Here is a freebie I created to help make sure my kiddos stayed organized:

Now, we are in the “publishing” stage. I can’t wait to see their finished work (and illustrations). I plan on making one big classroom book when they finish. I’ll post more resources as we finish using them.

Last, but certainly not least, my current Currently from the pageant queen herself, Farley, from Oh, Boy Fourth Grade

Do a lot of places do big things for Teacher Appreciation Week? My old school didn't do to much for the occasion. And a few other bloggers are working on plans for next year! Love your pageant title and platform. If you have a moment, check out my blog. I am having a great giveaway that ends today!

I LOVE your animal notes freebie - I will definitely use that when we start non-fiction writing. Thanks!
