Sunday Stuff

I'm convinced this is true.   Unfortunately, spring break ends tonight for this teacher. It was a relaxing week, but it went way too fast.  In fact, the 1200 good intentions I had never did get accomplished, but there's always summer right? 

I am excited about our literature unit coming up. We'll be reading How I Became a Pirate by Melinda Long. The illustrations are as adorable as the story because David Shannon is the illustrator.  We'll be working on all kinds of Common Core this week. I tried to hit a little bit of everything, from questioning, to vocabulary to point of view and even a bit of opinion writing. 
In addition to this unit for Shared Reading time, we'll also be working on map skills.  I love our pirate theme while teaching basic map skills.  Also included in this unit is a poem for the week, as well as, centers.

In addition to these pirate resources I also have a few FREE pirate centers on Teachers pay Teachers.
Both of my pirate units are 15% off tonight. 
I hope you all have a great week! 



  1. I already own your "Maps, Mateys, and Mischief" unit, and LOVE it! Thanks for the freebies…your "How I Became a Pirate" unit is now in my cart:)

  2. Michelle, I have followed your blog and have it on my fav list for since I started blogging. Love how you show off your TPT items. Can you share how you add the words and background? I always hate to ask, but was wondering if you can send a pointer.
