I officially have spring fever and I cannot wait to start running with all of the wonderful holidays that are "on deck."  With this said, I completed my latest mini-pack . . . Story Element Shamrocks + Other St. Patrick's Day Reading/Writing Activities (is that a mouthful or is that a MOUTHFUL).

My goal with this affordable collection was to create a handful of fun St. Pat's activities that you could slip into the mix here and there throughout the next few weeks.

This packet targets story elements, sequencing, and all sorts of writing.  I also tried to include some generic templates that you could pull out again any time throughout the rest of the year.  

I can't let you leave empty handed . . . I just can't  . . . it doesn't seem right :)  So, here a copy of one of the pages in this festive pack - Plan-A-Story: Lucky Little Leprechaun.  I think my kiddos will get a kick out of this creative write.  I'll pop back in for an update when we end up rollin' with this one.  The packet contains different writing templates that go with this planning document - story book and lined paper.

Gotta heart Ms. Ashley Hughes and her stitched graphics :)
I was in a mood today and just kept right on sittin' at my computer until I hammered out my latest idea.  This morning I also put together a school year bundle of my Good Morning Work - Reading.  If you are interested in checking this out, click on the picture below. I am offering all 11 sets (August-June) up for only $20 in March.  Each month I will update the file to include the latest pack (and the price will increase a bit too).  SO . . . the earlier you buy the more cash-o-la you save and the more packs you get for FREE.  If you have purchased most or all of the GMW packs thus far, this bundle is NOT for you. However, if you just found these common core aligned ditties, this is a great value!    They are all available now :)


Alright friends, I am off to get ready for my real job.  Since we had the week off (I know . . . lucky lady), I need to back up a bit and wrap my head around Presidents for a minute or two.  Here's to a great round next week . . . thank you for visiting!
