It's Monday Made it Time!

Don't ya just love Tara over at 4th Grade Frolics? Me too! And I definitely love her linky! :)
Classroom Made-its:
1.) I am finally done with my The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe Fantastic Folder!!!! I blogged about this little baby during my "Budding Blogger" over at the amazing Amanda Madden's blog! Missed it? Click here to read up! This activity is a HUGE hit in my classroom every year. My students love it, and so do their parents! It is an interactive lapbook, and it is huge! It covers most of the R.L. Common Core standards all in one book for grades 3-6 (Could be modified for grade 2!) AND, it's brightly colored and fun! Sound good? Check out the preview below!

Like what you see? CLICK HERE to head on over to my TPT to pick up your own copy to use in your classroom! Just get a copy of the book, and you are ready to go! It's that easy :)

2.) I worked so hard on this little number, and I am so proud of it! My Reading Informational Text CCS packet is done! I have gotten great reviews on it so far! Here's the info below, and click here to head over to my TPT and pick up your own copy:)
3.) I didn't so much make this, as cut out and laminate! This is a product I HIGHLY recommend from Rundee's Room. I keep these Reading Elements Questions Fans in my Read to Self and Buddy Reading stations. Students have to independently respond to 2 questions in their reading journals each day after these stations during Daily 5 time! They are great practice for standardized tests, and comprehension checks!

My last made it is an at home one! I have been sick for almost all of spring break! How annoying, huh?! I know you all can relate to how that works... we get time off, our bodies start to relax, and we get sick! UGH! Anywho, all I've been able to eat is icecream (not complaining) and soup! So yesterday I whipped up some homemade broccoli cheddar soup, Panera bread style! YUM! Click on my picture below to go to the Pinterest recipe I use for this! It is delicious and a huge fav of hubs and I's :)

Happy Monday everyone! Head on over to Tara's blog and link up! I'm off to go to the doctor and hopefully enjoy my last day of break! :)

  1. Hi!
    I'm your newest follower!
    Love your Narnia lapbook! It looks AMAZING!
    Today in Cleveland is Opening Day for the Tribe! I love it, too!
    Goooooo Tribe!
    Thanks for the chance to win!

    1. You got it!! Thank you for following :) You must be a fellow tribe fan?! LOVE IT:)

      I am emailing you your prize RIGHT now!


  2. Near Cleveland?? Me too! West side or east side? GO TRIBE! I'll definitely be checking out your Narnia unit. Used to do this when I taught 6th grade - thinking about reviving it for 3rd & 4th. Thanks :0)

    1. Yeah! Another Ohioan :) I am about 40 minutes South of Cleveland in Medina County! I absolutely love Narnia, and the kiddos do, too! I taught a version of this lapbook to my 6th graders when I taught 6th grade, and now this version is a little simpler and aligned more with upper elementary standards! You could definitely do it in your 3rd & 4th grade rooms!! Thanks for reading and following :)


  3. Opening Day? Our kids were all a flutter about the Red Sox tonight...and the fact that they are leading the league (I really don't expect that to last long AT ALL!!)

  5. I am heading over to teachingmaddeness right now to read more about your lapbook. What a great teaching tool! My husband and I took a trip to Cleveland last year to see the Indians play... but I'll admit we were rooting for the Yankees! What a great place for a weekend getaway.

  6. I really like your LWW lapbook. I had a student of mine read that this year fora book report and that would have been awesome to use. We did get his parents to take him to Wheaton College where they actually have CS Lewis' actual wardrobe and desk that were the inspiration behind it all. Soooooo cool and the kids loved it.

    Every kid should have books like these when they read!
