Setting...Just The Basics {and a Map}

Hi Friends...I have another fun Common Core Freebie using a Brace Map. Below you see a Brace Map  to help teach setting. I LOVE using the Lakeshore vocabulary building picture set seen here {bottom left corner}. You can one set of cards or the whole set. Check it out by clicking on the picture:

Use my little brace map below to teach and learn about setting. This particular map I call "Just the Basics." I use it just to begin the process of learning to tell the setting by using the pictures provided in the vocab. box set and identify the who, where, and when of the picture. Some pictures don't lend themselves very well to identifying the when or the where however I encourage my kiddos to get creative and make it up. Grab a copy of the brace map below by clicking on the picture. 
You can grab the "advanced" copy of the setting brace map in my new Surfin' Back To School Unit. It will be finished in about a week! Happy Sunday!

I'M BAAAACKKKK!!!!! with a Surfin' Fun Freebie!

Hi there friends... it has been a while, but as promised I am back and ready to go! I have started my newest unit called...Surfin' Back To School 

and I have decided to GIVE AWAY (yes you heard... I mean read it right!-I am GIVING AWAY) the first game. It is called "Feelin' Crabby!" and it covers ELA Common Core Standards RF1.2.b,c, and d.This game is one of many included in the Surfin’ Back To School Unit. If your students enjoy this game they will definitely enjoy the entire unit because it is packed full of hands-on/minds-on games just like this one and includes math and ELA activities. This game focuses on blending sounds together to make words, segmenting, and identifying beginning, middle, and ending sounds. I only ask one little favor...please follow me here on my blog AND follow me on Teachers Pay Teachers. If you already are a follower, please introduce my little blog and shop to one of your teacher friends-and that is it! I thank you in advance in helping me grow my list of friends-you NEVER can have too many friends...right?!

Below is a preview and you can grab a copy at my store...remember to join my blog (if haven't already) and my TPT store, or introduce a friend to me!!! Take a look below:

Stay tuned because Surfin’ Back To School Unit is coming soon and you won't want to miss out on this one! Make Back To School the easiest it has ever been by grabbing Feelin' Crabby and my Surfin’ Back To School Unit !
