It's officially Movember in my classroom and my kids are thrilled! Who knew a mustache could bring so much enthusiasm and fun to reading! I've partnered with Creative Teaching Press to bring a giveaway to you! You can enter to win a BUNCH of fun mustache goodies :) Here's how to enter:
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!
It's finally done! My Fiction Bloom's Ladders can be found here and you can grab the Non Fiction Blooms Ladders here. Don't know what these are? I've described how I use them and make them into a video game here. :)
When I found these adorable Frankenstein containers in the Dollar Spot at Target, I knew I had to create some fun Halloween centers! Want to win the unit that contains 6 CCRS aligned LA centers? Head over to the facebook page and enter! Or you can grab your copy immediately by clicking here.
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'! :)
