1-2-3 Come Do Some Miss Nelson is Missing Activities With Me
I am so excited to share my latest creation! I hope you have as much fun with it, as I did designing the Miss Nelson is Missing Literacy & Math packet.
Do you have a sub folder, binder or sub tub? If you don’t, I can’t emphasize enough how important it is to take the time to make one.
You will be thanking yourself a zillion times later, when an emergency arises or you or your own children are sick. This easy prep is a huge time saver!
Whether you’re “eaten by sharks” or “carried off by aliens”, you’ll have the peace of mind that “Viola Swamp” or whoever else subs for you, has a lesson plan.
This packet is HUGE, a whopping 203-pages, so there's enough for you to use part of the packet to teach a variety of standards, with plenty left over to add to a sub folder, binder or sub tub.
It’s loaded with all sorts of reading, writing & math activities that your students will really enjoy doing.
There are also some awesome classroom management goodies like a Viola Swamp (Stop & Freeze!) tool, a Sweet Miss Nelson Punch Card, along with "Swamp's Stamp of Approval" posters & bookmarks that promote positive behavior.
I've included a few little extras for making a sub tub, binder or folder, such as a "welcome note", cute "submarine" covers, & a "while you were out" form for them to fill out, so you know how things went.
There's a ton of writing prompts with 5 craftivities like the "What bugged Miss Nelson? How did Miss Swamp bug the children?" ladybug, as well as the "Flipping over Characters" booklet.
As always, I include photographs & my completed sample masters, to share with your kiddos if you don't have the time to whip one up.
Completed projects make wonderful bulletin boards to showcase your students' work.
Everything’s centered around the story, but also works independently as well. Simply pick & choose what’s appropriate for your kiddos.
Run things off, organizing them however best suits your schedule, then fill out your lesson plan for what you’ve done, include the book & you’re good to go!
Woo hoo! No worries, no stress, no trying to think, when your brain is elsewhere or your body is ill. I did the work, so you don’t have to.
Using the materials I’ve provided & perhaps adding a few of your own ideas, you’ll have a sub tub, binder or folder that you can reuse every year! One more thing checked off your “too-long” to do list.
The packet includes: posters, pocket chart cards, word cards, games, puzzles, a variety of worksheets, graphic organizers, Venn diagrams, lots of vocabulary-building word work, 2 class-made books, & an emergent reader.
There's also inference & prediction activities, text to text, self & world activities, so you can cover even more Common Core.
The math activities review: numbers, skip counting by 2s, 3s, 5s & 10s, counting backwards, 2D shapes, addition & subtraction story problems, plus measurement.
Your kiddos will especially love the "Where's Miss Nelson, Miss Swamp & Detective McSmogg" shape games.
The photo shows the Miss Nelson set. There's a matching set for the other 2 characters as well.
Because Miss Nelson is Missing, it seemed only appropriate to include a variety of "What Letter or Number is Missing?" worksheets.
My personal favorite math activity is the paper airplane measurement craftivity game.
I've included a pattern students fold to make the plane, plus recording sheets to fill with a variety of data about how far the planes flew.
This is a super-fun way to practice a variety of math skills like: measurement, graphing, comparison-contrast, guesstimation, addition & subtraction.
I'm confident that you will LOVE the versatility of this super-fun, stress-busting packet. It’s one of my most useful & all-time favorites.

I have 3 FREEBIES for you today. All of them are included in the packet.
The Miss Nelson is Missing pocket chart cards, are not only a quick, easy & fun way to review the story, but practice end punctuation and capitalization as well. Click on the link to grab this useful FREEBIE.
I'm also featuring 2 anchor chart-posters. Click on the link for the "Parts of a Story" poster.
The "If people don't appreciate your presence, then make them appreciate your absense" poster is a wonderful writing prompt for the Miss Nelson is Missing Story. Discuss what the poster means and how it ties in with the story.
That's it for today. Time to go "cruising" in our Cooper & watch lots of antique trucks, hot rods & vintage cars cruise down 28th street.
Each year this "blast from the past" gets bigger & better. Wishing you a wonderful weekend filled with sweet summer moments.
