Back to School Bash 2016 Prize

Hey Friends,
Well, friends, the time has come!  It's time to HOP HOP HOP around to 24 blogs for your chance to win some major giveaways!!!  We've teamed up to bring a little fun and excitement to this crazy time of year for teachers.  Our bash baskets are sure to bring some style to your wardrobe, materials to your classroom, and a smile to your face!

Here's how it works...  You'll have a couple of days to hop around blogs and enter the giveaways using a Rafflecopter.  At the bottom of each post, there will be a button that will lead you to the next giveaway!  The more blogs you enter on, the better your chances are of winning :)))

 If you have followed my blog for very long, you know that I LOVE books.  I'd rather buy books than a pair of new shoes or an outfit.  Children's books are especially my weakness!  If you love books even half as much as I do, then this prize is for you!!

I'm giving one lucky winner a $100.00 Amazon gift card to use toward the purchase of some of your favorite books.  All you have to do is follow me on Facebook to enter.

After you've entered, make sure you click on the image below to hop on over to my friend, Erica's post!  Good Luck and have a GREAT school year!

OOPS!  I almost forgot!  Be sure and check me out on Instagram at mrsjumpsclass on Wednesday to hear all about how to enter for the GRAND PRIZE.  

Planning Your Instruction

Curriculum Map for Kindergarten and First Grade

Can you imagine if I were to jump in my car and decide to drive to California? I point my car west and drive... no map, no GPS, just a general direction.  I would probably get there, but it would not be the most effective method.

That is the same idea behind a curriculum map.  It helps you find your way.  It helps you to know you are on the right track.  Can you take detours?  Absolutely!  But you HAVE to know where you are going BEFORE you start the car!

Start with a Curriculum Map

We have included the "Big Ideas" for word study, reading, writing, and math.   That was easy!

Read Aloud Suggestions

Whether you are following our Guiding Readers Series or not, you can still use these text suggestions to have meaningful and deep discussions in your classroom.  It just takes some planning, but starting with a great book helps!  If you don't have the time to invest in the planning, don't worry!  We have done it for you.  You can see these units HERE.

Writer's Workshop Mentor Text Suggestions

We believe that authors learn about writing by studying the work of other authors.  Deedee Wills and I have compiled a list of books that work perfectly as mentor texts for kindergarten and first grade. We spell out how to use these books in our writer's workshop units if you need some support.
