It’s Worksheet Wednesday over at The Teaching Tribune. For this special occasion, I’m reposting a post from last month about my newest pack, Interview A ____ Grader (available in grades K-3). Anyway, at the end of this post is a FREE sample worksheet straight from the packet! Read the post below to find out more about it!

Happy Hump Day, friends!
I am going to introduce something to you that I’ve been very excited about. Now, if you follow me on Facebook (and if you don’t, WHY ON EARTH NOT?! Hehehe, I kid, I kid! Please do not stop reading. I promise I’m not mean…), then you’ve seen this little thing get some exposure already.
I’ve been really trying to think of some fun activities for my firsties to do as we begin to wrap up our school year. FYI, we are down to 7 days left. WHAT?! Where did this year go? This is when my emotions play in. I love my summer breaks, but I love my firsties too. I’m sure many teachers, if not every teacher, goes through this push and pull feeling.
Anyway, my kids are so ready for second grade. Academically, they are totally there. Mentally, they are ready. Emotionally, they want to stay in first. So, I thought to myself, “Wouldn’t it be absolutely great if they could just go into a second grade classroom and talk to the teacher and the students in there?” That would totally ease their minds into summer and then next year, if they have that teacher, they can say, “I’ve been in here! We met last year! Remember me? Remember me?”
So, I immediately emailed on my second grade teacher friends and she was all for it thankfully. Isn’t it awesome when people jump on board with your wishes? Makes me so happy.
So, here it is, my friends.
When I posted this picture on Facebook, I had many people ask if I was going to make it for other grades. So, I did of course! I’m a people pleaser after all! I love to make people happy and smile, of course!
So, there is also a Kindergarten Version, 2nd Grade Version, and 3rd Grade Version. Just click on those links to take you to them!
Here is a sample page from the unit:
Just click the picture to download the Google Doc. Students write the question next to the number and then the interviewee’s answer on the dotted line.
If you read my last blog post, this interview takes place during the countdown to summer (which you could download for FREE from that post!), so our actual interview with the second graders will happen early next week. However, we will be starting this pack tomorrow with the reader’s theater and what-not to practice! I am sooooooo sooooooo excited!!! My kids are going to LOVE it!

I love your love for your kids! What an enriching idea for them to do as the year wraps up! Your reasonings are so solid, for sure! I have no doubt that they will miss their teacher a great deal!
