This Year's Annual TPT Cyber Sale Starts Tomorrow!

This has been a super busy month for me, and I feel like I haven't been able to give my store the attention that it needs. That being said, I have been working on a new product for awhile and it is really close to being complete. I'm hoping to upload it to my TPT store sometime during the sale, so watch out for my brand new product which is all about Social and Emotional Learning.  

I also wanted to announce that I will be participating in the Teacher Pay Teacher annual Cyber Sale and everything in my store will be 20% off including my already discounted bundles. All you need to do to get the sale price is fill your carts on November 30th or December 1st and enter the code 'smile' into the promo code box. 

I wanted to send out a thank you to Artflex Graphics for creating and allowing me to use these fabulous banners.

Did you know that you can also save on TPT by leaving feedback on your purchases? For every dollar you spend on TPT you are given a credit, and once you have 100 credits you will have $5 to spend towards your future TPT products. I usually save all of my TPT credits to use towards my sale purchases.

2016 Student Made Calendars: A Great School Fundraiser or Gift for Parents

Are you looking for an idea for students to made Christmas gifts for their parents? Why not have your students make a calendar filled with their art for their parents? I have recently updated my Student Made Calendars for the 2016 year. If you have purchased this product last year make sure to download the updated copy and do this project again this year. 

My Student Made Calendars include:
-A cover page with room for a student illustration. 
-A calendar for each month of the year 2016.
-An illustration page for each month of 2016. Each page includes directions for a illustration appropriately themed for each month and enough room for the student illustration.

You could also chose to use this calendar as a fundraiser. As a class, your students could work together to complete the illustrations (perhaps the early finishers?) to make 2 or 3 unique copies of the calendar, and then you could copy and bind together a number of calendars to sell at your school’s holiday events and raise money for field trips or a worthy cause.

A peak into my.... Poetry Interactive Notebook

My Poetry Interactive Notebook includes 42 pages of fun poetry activities and posters. I have included a poster for each poetic device and a poster for each type of poem. I have also included a variety of interactive notebook foldable and templates for students to write their creative new poems on. below is an example of a diamante poem on a cute little envelope foldable. 

Below is an example of another foldable, this foldable is flower shaped and is a fun and creative way to practice the poetry device of alliteration. Students can choose a letter of the alphabet and write a different word that begins with their chosen letter for each petal of their flower. Once completed, students can colour and glue their alliteration foldable onto a piece of construction paper. 

The next foldable is meant to practice rhyming. Students need to write a word with it's corresponding rhyming word next to it along with a picture for each word for each box of the foldable. Students can then colour, fold along all dotted lines and cut along the heavy lines to create this cute foldable. All of these foldables would make a terrific poetry bulletin board display. 

This fun poetry bingo game is a great way to get students excited about poetry in an independent and interactive way. You can choose to have the goal of students completing each task on the poetry bingo game chart, or instead they can work at achieving a line on the bingo card during a specific block of time. 

All of these templates plus more are available in my Poetry interactive Notebook product which is for sale in my TPT store. Click on the link here to learn more about this great product and to visit my TPT store.
