What do you do when your lesson goes MUCH quicker than you planned? I know we all have some back-up ideas, and sometimes just having the kiddos read or catch up on late work is ideal. But - if you're looking for something different that nearly any age will like - then check out this site! http://storylineonline.net/ There are about 24 stories on there now, but they seem to add to them regularly! (I recommend checking it out at school first to see what your speed is like. I've worked in districts where this website doesn't work too well...)
**The Polar Express is one of the stories they feature! Maybe that can help you out when planning for Christmas?!
Can you see yourself using this website? Had you heard of it before? What else do you do when you finish a lesson earlier than you had planned?
