Gearing up with Gooney!

As you prepare for the upcoming week, we’d like you to check out the latest edition to our store.

We had so much fun creating this book unit. Lois Lowry makes the classroom so fun! In each chapter of Gooney Bird Is So Absurd, Mrs. Pidgeon begins each morning with a poem. If your students are stuck in believing poetry is booooring (like Principal Leroy) this is a great way to get them excited about rhythm and rhyme! 
In our new unit, you will find chapter questions (complete with answer keys)…

A summary page…
Vocabulary cards…
Some fun extension activities…

And a poetry section…

We’ve included poetry covered in the story (short poems, a haiku, couplets, limericks, and list poems) and a few extras for fun (cinquain, wishing poem, and autobiographical poem)!
Our exclusive freebie this Sunday is an extra from this unit. Lois Lowry describes some outlandish outfits in every Gooney Bird Greene book. This simple page gives students the chance to illustrate the outfit and give it a silly name.
Stop by our store today to grab our first Gooney Bird book unit for 15% off! Be sure to follow our Teachers pay Teachers store to be the first to know when our next unit is ready!


Sunday Sales – Everything Autumn!

The air is getting cooler the leaves are starting to fall autumn is just around the corner! Over here at Creation Castle we are ready for fall! We’ve been working on a huge autumn unit that we’d like to give you a sneak preview of.

This autumn unit is focused on pumpkins. In the final product there will be activities for seven fiction books, three non-fiction books, science experiments, math centers and more! We’re really excited about this unit and can’t wait to finish it.

Since we’re giving you a sneak peek at the unit, we have placed our Fall Patterns {AB, ABC, & ABB} on sale for 15% off for today only! Come check it out!

As promised, we have an exclusive freebie for our blog followers. This week, we’ve uploaded a quick activity for September 11th. Click on the picture below to access the file.

After talking about the events that happened on September 11, 2001, have students write a poem or draw a picture about what happened that day or how they feel about what happened. These sheets can be used as an independent activity, or you can cut out the squares and create a quilt with the students work to make a bulletin board.

Don’t forget to stop by our store and pick up your discounted Fall Patterns!
