Another year, another book tasting! I love doing this activity as a fun way to review genres and introduce our book challenge for the year. This year, I added some jazzy music to the mix. One student said, “We’re going on a date with a book!” 😂📚 #funinfourth
Are natural resources a part of your curriculum? 💎 💨 🌳 This collaborative, hands-on sorting task is a part of my Natural Resources is Canada bundle. 🦞🍄☀️ Kids love this engaging first look at natural resources.

I make them in PowerPoint because I get: - the size I want - the font I want - the colour I want If you head to my InstaStories, I walk you through how I make them in PowerPoint, step-by-step.
One of the first tasks I do each year is have my students write me a letter. Then, I write back to each and every one of them. Sometimes students will respond again. I love this addresses envelope I received today. 💕 #funinfourth
