Visual Plans of all things Toothy!

Tell me it's not Wednesday already!!!  Goodness, Gracious, Me!  Well after having a full day of district PD over teacher evaluations, SMART goals, and setting the stage for writing pre- and post- Math testing assessments, my brain feels like a foggy mess.  On a positive note, it was so nice to talk to my other first grade colleagues from across the district!!  (Michelle, it was so nice to finally sit and chat my dear!!)  
Let me share my plans for the week before they suddenly become obsolete.  
Big themes this week~
New CAFE' Critter: Armando, the Armadillo (use a dictionary or thesaurus to define new words.)
Long U patterns
Toothy Treasures Literacy Unit (by Sarah Paul)
Animal Adaptations (teeth are used for...)
Writing: If I had animal teeth....

I combine ALL things teeth-related into this unit because I feel I can make the  most connections with other cross-curricular units too.  (And for some reason, I can never squeeze teeth into March planning! Works best for us in April instead as a lead in to our Healthy Kids Conversations presented by ProMedica and other science-related animal adaptations units.  Here's a PEEK at my WEEK!

I had such sweet feedback from some very special friends on last month's Easter Bunny's Assistant application, I decided to make a new template to fit my TOOTHY theme!!
I would love to share my Tooth Fairy's assistant Job Application with you!  Just click on the  image below for a TPT freebie!  

This special peek at my week series is brought to us by 
Mrs. Wills!  Thanks Deedee!

Happy Hump Day everyone!!!  
34 days and counting!!
