VA is for Bloggers - Southern Hospitality Freebie Blog Hop

Welcome to Virginia!

Virginia is for Lovers Bloggers!

A lovely group of Virginia bloggers would like to help usher in the new school year by extending a bit of southern hospitality.  You can follow along the blog hop to visit 20+ Virginia teacher blogs for terrific teaching tips and fun freebies to help get your new school year off to a great start.

 For my freebie, I decided to share what I've created for my unit on Citizenship, since I know a lot of teachers like to start the year with that unit!

Click on the picture to go get your freebie!  It includes scenario cards appropriate for K-5, where students have to decide what is the "right" thing to do!  I hope you find it as useful as I do! It's part of my Citizenship Bundle at my store, so if you like this, be sure to check it out! 
I'm also holding a BACK TO SCHOOL sale this week (today - Wednesday) as well, to commiserate celebrate the teachers' return to school in our district this Wednesday!

The next stop on the hop is  Fluent in Fourth

Love the freebie- such an important concept. I can definitely use this with my fourth graders. We don't have a citizenship unit unfortunately, but it'll be great for the first week of school when we're discussing rules and respect!

I'll let you know how it goes :) I'm thinking I could get some interesting answers from the kiddos!

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these scenario cards! I used to do something like this with my class and they loved it. These cards give me a great way to work it back in as part of our getting to know you activities! Thank you!

These are fabulous! And I do this unit at the beginning of the year too- we combine it with economics.

This is a great freebie. Citizenship is such a difficult unit to teach and my firsties always need real life examples to help them to know what to do. Great for back to school!

Thank you!

Thank you! We are required to teach character education at my school and I am always looking for new ideas!

Andrea Crawford said...

These are great! They can be used all year, especially when those situations arise!

I go back on Thursday and am not looking forward to it at all. Good luck on Wednesday!
