The Military Grade Sleep System


You can read more about it here.

(A friend of mine found this at Target. It's for children who are afraid of monsters in their bedrooms, or may otherwise have trouble sleeping by themselves. According to my friend, her child feels safer and more comfortable. I checked the Target website but couldn't find it. However, your local store may carry it.)

Write a Hamburger Sentence!

Use the graphic below to write a hamburger sentence. Or, if you wish to get creative, cut out circles from different colored paper (ex: brown for meat, red for tomatoes, green for lettuce) and have the students write one word per "slice" to build it.

To expand it further, or to make it more challenging, you can add a "yellow for cheese" and a "white for mayo" to make the sentence building harder.
