There’s a lot of room for creativity in teaching.  Here are the things I’ve been creating lately:
Here’s a fun project when studying habitats.  I took a piece of butcher paper and painted a simple African savanna scene.  I had the students illustrate animals and add them to the scene in a place where they would blend it.  It was a great opportunity to talk about camouflage and its purpose in the animal world.

If you’ve followed my other Monday Made It posts you know I’m a card maker.  These are some Valentines I made a few weeks ago.
Here’s a freebie I made!  Teaching fables and folktales is specifically referred to in the Common Core standards.  Here is an anchor chart to help students recognize the traits of fables.  Click on it to download a copy.

This comes from a fable genre study packet with activities that work with any fable.  Click to check it out at my store.

  1. Love this anchor chart…wondering if you would be willing to make all the anchor charts to go with all the genres? This would be very helpful for our classroom! Thanks so much for sharing!

  2. Could it be possible for you to make a Tall Tales poster just like the Fable one? I would be willing to buy it on TPT. Love the fable poster.
