The Day the Monsters Came to School...

**This unit would be most useful for Back to School work after a long holiday. For Australia it means early February and for the U.S it means August. ** I'll make this a short post since (if you're anything like me) you're either wishing you'd started lesson planning earlier or frantically looking for ready made lessons to help start you off. (this is me ha!)

So I'd like to introduce you to a unit I've recently completed, it is 77 pages and loaded with literacy and math centres which are all in line with specific outcomes. (these are all listed below). It;'s called Monsters! It'll be a sure way to kick off Kindergarten or Grade 1. It is geared towards reinforcing skills already learned or reviewed however, it can be used as an introductory unit to the skills you'd like to teach. Here is a snapshot / preview of the centres and activities included:
