D is for David's New Friends

Wow! I've gotten quite a few new followers thanks to Mrs. Simpson's Fabulous 15 Giveaway. Welcome to all of you!

For those of you who don't know, we use Florida Treasures at my school and I have made centers for Unit 3, Week 5 to Unit 6, Week 5. Click {HERE} to read the post on how I run my centers during our mandatory 90 minute Reading Block.

During the summer, I'm going to start at the beginning and make centers for each story. I just finished Unit 1, Week 1 David's New Friends. (I'm currently loving Miss Law's cute fonts.)

I've also been asked to explain how I'd use the centers each week. I think that some/most of the activities can be used in classes that don't use Treasures. If you can hang on to the end of these centers posts, I will include a freebie from the unit.

Each unit also comes with a student To-do list, teacher planner list, and center menu to display on your board.

Here are some activities:
Poetry - using Just 4 Teachers Poetry Pack

Social Studies

Science - use nonfiction texts about baby animals

Grammar Sort
Word Work (2 sort versions)

Writing (planning page)

Reading - use with any fiction books in your library

 Here's a freebie of the Reading center:

I hope you find some of these things useful. =)

  2. Thank you for sharing. I teach California Treasures and I think many of the stories overlap. I am always looking for ways to improve/add to each week's story.

  3. I'm so sad I moved up to 3rd grade instead of sticking with 2nd grade Treasures! This looks FANTASTIC! :)

  6. Very nice! I have added this to my wishlist. I was wondering, do you have any resources for the leveled readers? I am in Florida as well and my district provided us with the leveled readers but no resources. Were you provided with any or have you created anything? Thanks!


    1. Thanks Christina! I haven't made anything yet since we just usually read them and do the graphic organizer in the teacher's edition. I will look into doing something with them. Any ideas/needs?
