W Is For....

This is part of Teaching the Alphabet blog party.
(I am posting this early since I will be out of town without my computer.  I wanted to make sure everything was working before leaving.)

I have the letter W.   
My inspiration was this book.
This story is appealing to younger learners but also very witty for older children.  
It also covers lots of standards; both Common Core Standards and California.
Included in this packet are ideas for math, reading and writing.  

Kindergarten students will probably do many of these activities in a whole group setting through interactive and shared reading and writing lessons. Whereas, first grade students will be able to do some independently after teaching modeling.

I have worked hard to create this for my classroom and yours.  Please respect my work by not distributing to others, rather referring them to my blog.  If you do enjoy it, please leave a comment.  I would also love to see this in action.  Send an email.   It would make my day to see children using it!

Now it's your turn.  Below is a list of bloggers who have signed up to host a letter.
Thank you ladies!  :)

Didn't sign up.  Don't worry.  You can join in the fun, too!  
I can't wait to see all the ideas!  

Happy Teaching and Learning!
