Do you have a favorite author or series? I have quite a few series and authors that I love to share with students. The Black Lagoon series by Mike Thaler is a wonderful series because the books can be easily incorporated throughout the year.
- Back to School: Share the books and introduce the members of your school community.
- Appreciation Week: Read the Principal, School Nurse, Cafeteria Worker, etc. when it is the week to show appreciation for that person or group.
- Community Helpers: Add these books to your community helper lessons.
- Sub Plans: Perfect for sub plans because they aren't seasonal.
There are many different activities in my Lagoon Sub Plan file. Choose the ones you want for your emergency plans. Then use the extras for your Back to School and Appreciation Week plans.
The making words assignment in the picture above can also be used as a center or small group activity like the picture below.
There is a making word assignments for: teacher, principal, and cafeteria worker.
Read The Cafeteria Worker from the Black Lagoon before your nutrition lesson. This can either be used as your science lesson with your emergency sub plans, during cafeteria appreciation week, or with a nutrition unit.
