Resources for May

Cinco de Mayo, Mother's Day, Teacher appreciation, Memorial Day 

May is here, and the horses are at the gates.

Yes, the Kentucky Derby is this week, and there's a close read about the Kentucky Derby in THIS resource!

 I'm sure I'll have my kiddos wear fancy hats and find Kentucky on the map! Maybe even read a good horse book! (Click the images for links!)

This week also brings Cinco de Mayo AND Teacher Appreciation Day. 

I plan to celebrate Mexico on both Monday and Tuesday, then celebrate teachers for the rest of the week.

Here are some Cinco de Mayo resources:


Here's a fun word work game with a Mexico theme:

Of course I have a Mexico freebie:

This is what I plan on doing for Teacher Appreciation:

I'm going to run off a whole bunch of these Thank You Cards, and have them fill them out for the teachers in the school! I don't let them make them out to me,since there are plenty of other teachers who spend their time helping children. (Any adult who works with children is fair game for Teacher Appreciation, even if they don't have a certificate!)

or perhaps you'd like the freebie?

Here's some fun Mother's Day stuff: 

Literacy and Math

And here's my traditional Mother's Day gift:

Toward the end of the month is Memorial Day. I know some teachers will be enjoying summer by then, but we're not even close yet! 

Here's a sorting game to help children remember the different patriotic holidays: Which Patriotic Holiday?

Plus, a freebie for keeping track of the Patriotic Holidays!
