Journal Writing

Happy Thursday!  This week has gone by fast.  I have been working on my October Journal that you can find in my Teachers Pay Teachers store.  I think that the cover just might be my favorite one to date!  The goal is to have November and December posted by the store wide sale at TpT.  Don’t forget to stop by and check it out on August 2nd and 3rd.  You will find lots of products 20% off, my store included!  Here is a preview of my newest set.

Good evening!  I hope that everyone has had a wonderful weekend.  They always seem to go by fast.  Speaking of fast…..can you believe that summer break is coming to a close?!!  It won’t be long before I am trading in my flip flops and comfy clothes for work attire….not to mention the thought of wearing makeup 5 days in a row.  Yep, maybe I have enjoyed this time off a little too much.  Winking smile 
I have been busy working on things for the upcoming school year and thoughts of what changes I want to make are continuing to flood my mind.  Hopefully, all of the changes will be straightened out soon (only to be revamped after school officially starts I’m sure)  Does that happen to anyone else??? Smile 
Below is a sneak peek  of my most recent Journal packet.  It is for the month of September. (October should be finished and posted later this week….. Fingers crossed).  You can check it out in my Teacher Pay Teacher store by clicking the button on the side of my blog.  I am really excited about this set of prompts.  I have added cute pictures to a few of the pages so that students may write about the picture.  It will give them a great starting point to write using characters, setting etc. and allows for the prompts to be changed up a bit.   Hope you like it!

Hey guys!  I hope each of you had a fabulous week.  It went by FAST.  Today I wanted to share with you an August Journal I created for my classroom.  I know there are many of us who will only have our kiddo’s for around 10 days the first month, and there are others that might have to start much sooner.  So……I decided to make this journal FREE!  Smile The journal has an adorable cover, list of “heart words” (sight words), 20 prompts and extra lined paper.  I really hope that you enjoy the journal.  If you would like your own copy,  you can click the link below or my Teachers Pay Teachers button.  Thanks and enjoy!

professional development

Happy Monday!  I hope your week is off to a great start.  Today was day 1 of 3 workshops that I will be attending this week.  It is a little CRAZY how they are all this week.  My mind was already thinking about how I will be able to incorporate what I learned today in the classroom.  Our speaker had great information on phonics and how to simplify decoding for kids.  I wish I had learned the trick sooner and can’t wait to try it out.   Smile
