Two Writing Activities and an April Freebie!

Welcome Spring! Not that we really have spring here in the UAE.. it pretty much goes from kinda hot to really hot, in a hurry! Either way, I am feeling quite springy! That's why I created this awesome resource for my students - a Spring Reading Challenge. Spring Break ends this week for the students (although we have been back since Sunday!!! - blog post coming soon about my holiday), so I was looking for a way to get them excited about reading again as the end of the year comes closer! I decided to make this to do just that :). This allows them to keep track of their books using a fun coloring page. Also included are two different types of tracking sheets for the books the students have read, as well as two different versions of a goal setting sheet. The best part? There are three differentiated reading response menus (or choice boards) where the students can choose what activity they want to do! I will be using this during their independent reading time in our reading workshops and during our centers. The other best part? NO PREP! Ready to go and easy to use.  You can decide as a class what their reward will be if they reach their personal goals, or you can decide for them. You could also set goals for each reading group. You can use it however you choose! I hope your students can enjoy it as much as I know mine will! I will add some pictures of my students using this once they return back to school.

The other new product I am excited about is my Comic Strip packet. Earlier I posted a comic strip pack that was related to the American Revolution, which my students LOVED! They did a really great job on their comic strips. It had me thinking that comic strips can be used for pretty much anything, and the kids really enjoy it. So, here is an easy, NO PREP, fun way to have your students show what they know! There are options for 4, 5, 6 or 8 frames - brainstorming sheets, planning sheets and good copies. There are also 3 options of rubrics as well. If you needed an alternative to the three provided, I would also be happy to alter one for you. You could use this for many years to come!!! Check it out:

 And here is the moment you've been waiting for.. your April freebie! Sorry for it being late, with Spring Break and the lack of internet while on a cruise I had a few technical difficulties. Better late than never!!!

Maybe you are a KG teacher or primary teacher and your students are working on your writing, or maybe you're like me and your middle school students need some extra handwriting practice!! This is just a simple handwriting booklet where students can work on all the letters and write sentences to practice the letters in context. Click the photo for the free download! Please remember to leave feedback. :)
