Stories Unit...

I’m on Spring break for the NEXT TWO WEEKSSSSS!!! Let me just tell you I am the happiest girl in the world right now! I am going to Jamaica with some very fun friends on Wednesday (poor B has to stay home because his graduate program has a different schedule…booooo!) My body, mind and soul all need some R&R like none other. Before I completely drift off into laa-laa land I wanted to share what I’ve been working on…
Our school has been working very hard this past year to re-vamp our current curriculum. Our Principal has worked with us to create interdisciplinary units using a curriculum program called Atlas Rubicon. At first most teachers would roll their eyes or mumble under their breath when Atlas was talked about. However, now I’m finally seeing what the purpose of it is. It will be great when all of our units are uploaded onto it and we can have a clear look at our year in one place. The art, music, foreign language teachers etc. will be able to see when we teach certain units and we will be able to collaborate.  Do any of you use Atlas at your schools?
Our next unit is Stories. It is a completely new unit for our team and I’m excited!!! It’s not like we didn’t teach about stories before, but now we have a few weeks to really dedicate to why stories are important and can be found all around us!!
I completely copied this idea from I took her Fiction Story Walk and tweaked it to what elements I want my little people to focus on.
