First, Central and West Texas are not known for Mardi Gras celebrations. But Galveston, which is near Houston, has a grand ol' time! We were inspired to try to share the fun with our newest unit, Mardi Gras Merriment!
Mardi Gras Merriment is all about celebrating with 14 pages and $2.50. Here's what you get:
Read and Draw: Students are asked to read factual sentences about Mardi Gras. Students are asked to follow simple instructions to add to a drawing. Students answer a personal connection question.
Ask Away Game: Students play a fun Ask Away game based on Guess Who?
How Many Words Can You Make?: Students are challenged to make 10 or more words using only the letters in Mardi Gras
Mardi Gras Chat: Students write definitions for doubloons, fleur-de-lis, krewe, New Orleans and parade
And guess what? You can get it THIS WEEK Feb. 27-28 with the big TpT sale! All of the items from All Y'all Need will be 20% off, plus TpT is throwing in an additional discount!
Okay, on to TSHA... Our state convention hosts around 5,000 attendees and has multiple break-out sessions in many different strands. And guess who the keynote speaker is? Brene Brown, who will be telling us about Daring Greatly.
If you're going to TSHA, we are presenting (gulp!) on Thursday at 1:30 p.m. in Room 340. More on that tomorrow!
