Math, reading, writing, science, social studies. How do you fit it all in? And, as I write this, we are living in a global pandemic where so many teachers are not even teaching students every single day in the classroom. I have seen this play out over the last 15 years in education…there are new initiatives and a greater emphasis on ELA and math and social studies/science are shoved to the sidelines. I have seen this SO MANY TIMES.
Worst part? I LOVE teaching social studies. When I taught fourth grade in New York, our emphasis was on state history. When I taught third grade, the main emphasis was on world culture and communities. I absolutely loved this, and I think it’s because I was always learning about new places, new cultures, and new traditions.
Below is a video I made for you explaining how you can begin to EASILY weave in social studies and history into your reading and writing blocks.
Here is the FREE pack to try out that I mentioned in the video. (This will also help teach Constitution Day in September).
If you’re interested, the entire bundle is available here. Scroll down on this page to see all of the packs included. You can also snag individual packs instead of buying the entire bundle. 🙂
