Save the Earth!

I finished my latest book club packet that I know some of you have been waiting for.  Save the Earth! is a Ready Freddy book all about Earth Day so I can't wait to use it with high kiddos next week!

22 comprehension and vocabulary questions

A thinking map using adjectives to describe a character.

In the story, the students are given this challenge sheet so I made one for our students, too!

When the characters complete the challenge they get pins so I made these sticker labels for our students.
Only $3 in my TpT store if you are interested. 

I am back from Palm Desert to rainy and cold San Jose. Boo! Plus I am spending most of my day harassing encouraging my middle schooler to work on a report. I HATE reports!!! Reality is ruining my vacation.  I am still in my pjs and I only have 2 children driving me crazy instead of 30 so I guess I will choose to look at my cup as half full.  After I peek in on Mr. Moody (yes, that is my son when he has work to do) I will be back to check your blogs and hopefully, finally, have some time to comment!



  1. Def going to get this for my higher readers. Never used one before so I'm nervous but they're ready!


  2. I love the Earth Day Challenge! Yes, San Jose is very rainy and blustery. Did you hear the thunder last night it?!?!? It gave my kitty and I quite the scare! Booo for a rainy Spring Break you were smart to head to Palm Springs. I am a bay area kinder teacher. We should have a bay area teacher blogger meet up some time! I keep hearing of all these other meet ups that sound so fun!

  3. Great idea for Earth Day. I started using literacy packets or book clubs a few weeks ago with my first graders. I am going to check out your TPT store and packets.
