Me on a Map

We do a unit on maps when we read the story, "Me On the Map" by Joan Sweeney... It is in our Houghton Mifflin reading series a little later in the year.

One of my favorite projects is to make our own "Me On a Map" booklet.  I have just placed the packet  in my TPT store..  Here's my example that I use to model for the students:

Cover Page
Page 2 and Page 3
Page 4 and Page 5

Page 6 and Page 7
Another activity that we do beforehand is this freebie I am offering.  This is designed by my teammate, Stephanie, and it offers us a perfect way to get accurate street addresses before making the booklets.  I place the street address above the house.  Click on the picture to get your own freebie!  

If you're interested in making the "Me on a Map" booklet shown above, visit my TPT store!  

 If you have any questions, don't hesitate to let me know!!!!!  ;)

  2. Each year, I think Me on the Map will get easier! I think this year you hit the jackpot with these activities! I have tried a similar bullseye sequencing activity but yours is much more colorful!!! Thanks so much for sharing Jenn!

  3. Thank you Julie!!!! I'm so glad you like it!!! My favorite part is the book.... We go through them in small groups and the students have something that is individualized and we have SO much fun using Googlemaps on the SmartBoard to find everyone's houses!!!!!!! They are amazed (once they realize that the pictures are taken "from space"... ;)
