I'm back!

So it's been a year since my last post!

It's been a busy year...

My husband and I bought a house and now we are expecting our first baby, due in 9 weeks!

I made it my New Year's Resolution to post weekly and continue to work on the things I love, like craftivities, literacy and math practice activities, and other things for my students and to share with teachers.

I have been busy working on some things for my Teachers Pay Teachers store and for my classroom.  

Here are some new things I have created...

Big Bushy Mustache Writing Craftivity

After reading Gary Soto's Big Bushy Mustache, students will be able to identify the main character's problem and explain how he solved his problem.

There is also a guide on how to use the Bubble Map and Four Square graphic organizer to help students organize their thoughts and complete their writing piece.
