Biography Freebie!

This weekend has been CRAZY busy for the hubby and me! I swear that everything is going on in Oklahoma City this weekend so we have been on the go, go, go. We went to our Arts Festival Friday night (and it was a perfect night for it!), we went to the Norman Music Festival all day yesterday, and today Todd ran the Memorial Marathon Relay with his family. Needless to say, I have done absolutely nothing school related this weekend.

I did want to share a FREEBIE with you all that I used this past week! We spent the week learning about biographies. We discussed information that biographies typically include and read several biographies together. Each day, I had the students fill out a page in their Biography Journal so they could record their learning. Click here to get your copy of the journal :)

Then as a culminating activity, the students had to interview an adult family member about his/her life. Then they came back to school and we worked on writing a biography about that person. I am so bummed that I didn't photograph their work because they did a great job!

Down to 19 days! We will be doing some fun activities these last weeks with some of my favorite books... Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, Miss Nelson is Missing, and Where the Wild Things Are!! And we will all do our best to make it to summer :)
