Ollie's Odyssey, Unit Plan Presentation
Mary Chavers and Megan Stranzin of Rosewood Magnet, presented a first grade unit plan that they will use to kick off the school year based on the text Ollie's Odyssey. The five week unit plan is complete with social emotional routines and strategies taught during the institute. The best part - they have made their plan available for anyone who would like to implement it in their own classroom!
A Performance to Remember
It didn’t matter if something was pretend or real; if it was remembered, then it was true. If it was remembered, then it didn’t go away.
"Remember" is a good word. - Ollie's Odyssey
