Product Swap with Flying into First!

Hi everyone!

For the product swap I was teamed up with the fabulous Latoya from Flying into First!  I was so excited when I got to choose any product from her amazing store (psst---we are both having sales to celebrate this awesome swap!)

Since Martin Luther King Jr's birthday is coming up, I chose to review her "Martin Luther King Jr Unit including Literacy and Math Centers" which is 81 pages full of resources, perfect for a week long "MLK" celebration! 

The pack includes these wonderful activities that I will use for morning work each day!  Each one is great for reinforcing skills, while also staying with the Martin theme of the week!
We are going to read "Martin's Big Words" and they are going to watch the MLK brainpop.  Then spend two days using these great graphic organizers to help plan our writing!  

Once we have our ideas down, there are a variety of great writing papers the kids can use to publish their work!
The kids will also compare their own character qualities to Martin Luther King Jr. as well as Obama to MLK jr.
 Another exciting part of this pack are the literacy and math centers!
I especially like this one.  The kids will use the letters of the word "peaceful" to spell other words!
This week we are learning about place value, so I was really excited when the pack included a place value game!  So perfect---the kids will LOVE it!

There you have it!  An awesome unit, about an amazing man, designed by a very sweet blogging buddy and fellow first grade teacher!  I can't wait to use this unit  with my kiddos next week.  :-)

Please check out Latoya's blog Flying into First!  She is reviewing my "There was an old lady" unit!  Also, feel to visit our stores and take advantage of our sales!
