It's FINALLY Friday! Woohoo! Our spring break begins at 2:55 today. I have a "to do" list pages long. Hopefully I can get some things accomplished and enjoy time with my family also.
My "to do" list this week was to get my Writer's Workshop ready to begin for fourth quarter with my kiddos. I have tweaked my schedule, and thought 4th quarter would be perfect to see how I can fit Writer's Workshop into my schedule next year. My goal for 4th quarter is to introduce my students to persuasive/argumentative essays that follow the Common Core Standard 1 for Writing in 3rd grade. So... my writing area is filled with the binders and necessary documents to help my students write. I can't wait to begin. To celebrate Friday and Spring break, you can find the items included in my students' binders for Writer's Workshop for free until Sunday at midnight at my TPT store HERE. Please leave some love if you download this item.
I have also been working on a "Power Up Our Persuasive Writing" unit to use during 4th quarter. Included in this packet are strategies for writing a persuasive essay, two types of graphic organizers that can be used, 6 student friendly writing prompts, and a student friendly rubric. You can find it for $2.50 at either my TPT store or TN shop. Just click on either TPT or TN to go to the link.
I'm celebrating the Grand Opening of my Teacher's Notebook Shop with a 20% off sale on all items. It begins Saturday, March 17 and goes through Friday, March 23. I will be adding several new items in the next few days. You can find my Teacher's Notebook Shop HERE.
Stay tuned for a "100 follower" Giveaway. I'm almost to 100 followers so I just HAVE to celebrate with a Giveaway. Also, Erika from The Honey Bunch has been busily working on a new design for my blog. I can't wait to reveal it. If you are looking for a new design, please check out Erika's portfolio on her blog HERE. She is fabulous to work with! Thanks Erika!! I can't wait!!!
