Frankenstein Poetry (Freebie included!)

My class is loving poetry this year, so I decided to spice things up a little and let my big kids have craft time! I overlook crafting with 5th graders, because time just doesn't allow it, but I forget how much they love it and how it gets EVERYONE involved and engaged in the activity. Today, we whipped up a quick and easy (my favorite!) Frankenstein craft and wrote a poem that consisted of 3 stanzas. They turned out so stinkin' cute!




You can grab this free poetry template here :)

Organizing Vocabulary Cards

Hey y'all! If you're anything like me, you LOVE the Target Dollar Spot. Seriously, it gets me every time! I find myself getting things that I have no idea what I need them for, because I KNOW I'll find something. For example, I always grab several of these things (I don't even know what they're called. anyone?)

Turns out, whatever these things are called are perfect for organizing vocabulary cards! I divide mine up by units. I also use them to store my blooms ladders and task cards. 





I'm sharing my 5 favorite things about fall over on Southern Belle Inspired, plus a new site where you can get discounted gift cards to stores like Target and Michaels! Come check it out and follow me on Bloglovin'! :)
