Party Planning FREEBIE, Valentine's Unit and Girls on the Run!

Hope your Monday is off to a great start! Just a quick little post -- first of all, we are all healthy in my classroom! Thank GOODNESS! We are still keeping Lysol in business though (; Second, have ya'll heard of Girls on the Run? Our school is starting it this year and I am an assistant coach. Our training session was yesterday and let me tell you -- what a great organization. I can't wait to start and help enrich and bring positivity to young girls, especially at such a crucial age.

Alright....I wanted to give a little freebie. We have started common core this year, and the "W" questions (who, what, where, when, why) are a part of them. I wanted to do something other than just a normal worksheet, so ta-da! Here is a plan a party worksheet with all of the "W" questions incorporated! Love having standards and fun together! I may have my students design their own invitations to their "party" or do an extension writing activity. I tell them that in order to be fair, everyone in the class needs to come to the party (including ME!). Get this freebie here!

I also uploaded a Valentine's Day unit. It is packed with language arts activities, craftivities and things that can be center work, too. Take a peek! I have also linked up with Sunny Days in Second Grade Show and Tell
