The month of May is incredibly exciting with Mother's Day, Memorial Day, National Police Week and even International Respect For Chickens Day all just weeks apart. Here at Ellison we really enjoy a good reason to celebrate and any opportunity to teach! Below you will find some lesson plans we created in honor of these fun days and more.
We absolutely love multi-purpose ideas! This May Day lesson plan is a great example of an idea you can re-purpose depending on your curriculum. This lacing flower is perfect as part of visual arts, perfecting fine motor skills, and showcasing what spring is all about. Check out the entire lesson plan here.
The International Firefighters Day section in the lesson plan calendar has a few ideas worth checking out but we really love this firefighter hat one. This lesson is such a great idea when studying community helpers like Firefighters. Talk about letting your student's imagination fly! Check out the full lesson plan here.
Physical Fitness Sports Month
May is Physical Fitness Sports Month and this bulletin board is motivational for both reading and exercise. We really love the 3-D effect with the soccer balls. You can also add the names of your students to the board for an added effect. Click here to download the PDF template to go along with the full lesson plan.
World Turtle Day
The World Turtle Day lesson plan list is chock full of great lessons for a sea life inspired unit. We wanted to showcase this Sea Scene #2 aquarium made with very few supplies. This entire lesson would go great with a sea life movie or as a report. Take a look at the full lesson plan here.
International Day of Families/Family
The International Day Of Families/Family has a few lesson plan ideas covering everything from mini books to organization. This boy and girl paper bag lesson plan is great for role playing, putting on a puppet show or even doing an oral book report. Check out the full lesson plan here for more information.
