So…did you figure out who I admire?!
It’s Elyse over at Proud to be Primary!
Every time I see a post from Elyse, I have to do a double take because I always think it’s me! I rarely ever meet anyone with my name, especially the same exact spelling…and the same initials! So cool!!
Elyse was gracious enough to contribute her amazing All About Frogs pack for me to use and review! My students had already used her All About Chickens activities so we were ready for the frogs! I am OBSESSED with these packs! They are chock full of resources for weeks of learning! Sadly, I had lots of testing to finish up the last couple weeks but I managed to squeeze in as much of this frog pack as I could! I’ll be finishing up the rest next week!
We started off by creating a K-W-L chart as a class on what we already knew about frogs and what we wondered. Then my students started their own
K-W-L. I love how this page allows for differentiation without needing separate papers! Students can write in complete sentences, make a list, or draw pictures.
Next up was a graphic organizer to sort all the information we had learned so far about frogs! The headings are a part of the pack plus it includes the words “tadpoles” too! (I didn’t want to start a brand new pad of paper with only a few short days left so I used the back cardboard piece, ha!)
My students had to write at least 2 facts and then they could draw pictures to show the rest. They always seem to take me up on the drawing offer!
Did I mention how many amazing activities are in this one pack?! I even printed off a page to use for homework! This “Read and Answer” about the frog’s life cycle was perfect to send home to help students work on comprehension. I printed the follow up questions on the back and sent it off in their folders. Many actually brought theirs back the next day…shocking!!
There’s still more from Elyse’s All About Frogs pack that we haven’t even gotten to yet! I love this fact sheet. I have this one copied and ready to go at the end of our unit. I’ll have my students complete this page along with filling in the “L” on the KWL page.
There are seriously SO many awesome pages and resources in this pack that I could be here all day telling you about it! Check out the giveaway below to enter to win a copy of this amazing pack or head on over to Proud to be Primary to check it out for yourself! I’m telling you, you will not be sorry with this purchase! You’ll be hooked and want all of Elyse’s packs like this one (trust me…I’m now an “All About…” pack addict and have them all on my wish list for future purchases!)

I love so many different blogs for so many different reasons that I'm not sure I can choose one. I'm kind of new at going through them so, honestly, I couldn't choose yet. I am finding so much great info on them that I never knew existed so I'm really happy to have this to renew my teaching. Thanks for the chance.
I know what you mean…there are so many wonderful blogs out there! Thanks for stopping by mine and commenting! 🙂
