Biography Time

Full disclosure-I started writing this post in blogger Nirvana.  It's spring break, my girls spent the night at my parents, my husband is working, the cleaning ladies are moving full speed ahead at my house, and I am sitting in Starbucks with a coffee and my iPad.  Bliss.

It's spring break now, but when I return, it will be biography time.  I've been scouring the internet.  Okay, that's not true.  Apparently it's biography time for a lot of people because all kinds of cool biography stuff has been popping up in my feed and on Pinterest.  Thank you, good ideas, for coming to me.

So far, I've found these pins:

This tiny little thing is fabulous! Connecting biographies to iPhones. Instant engagement.

And I've come across some great ideas recently as I was reading through blogs:
Making a scrapbook from L. Marie at Chickens, Crayons, and Diapers

And from Sabra at Teaching with a Touch of Twang

These are my favorite biography series:

And here's a little fun something from me to download that I use with my reading groups.  Print on card stock, fold, tape, voilà.


  1. We need projects to do with the kids after state testing each day when we return from our spring break. I already discovered the scrapbooking pages from Teaching with a Touch of Twang and discussed doing those with my grade group. Now, I am liking the cut out you pinned with the arm holes. With two weeks of testing, I think we could do both. Thanks for sharing, Stacy @

  2. Oh Megan we are so green with envy. We have another week before we can sit at Starbucks and enjoy some down time!

    Love the poster ideas-they are hilarious! Such a great way for students to learn. And the arm holes are awesome!
    The "Who Was" series is indeed fabuous (plus all the lil people on the front are so stinkin cute!"

    Thanks for sharing!
